Abstract. The article presents the characteristics of modern reconnaissance systems in the radar range and camouflage methods for this range. Two absorbers of electromagnetic radiation in the 4-18 GHz range were tested, measuring their attenuation properties. Carbonyl iron and thin-walled hollow microspheres based on soda-lime-borosilicate glass were tested, on the basis of which paint coatings with different shares of absorbers and different coating thicknesses were produced. The attenuation properties of both absorbers were determined and attention was paid to the maximum values and frequencies for which they occur. Further directions of research were also proposed in order to obtain varnish coatings that are an effective camouflage agent in radiolocation.
