The exciting features of metamaterial in conjunction with transformation optics leads to various applications in the microwave regime with such examples as invisible cloak, frequency selective surfaces (FSS), radomes, etc. The concept of electromagnetic invisibility is very much important in aerospace platform. Hence to study the feasibility of implementation of this concept for stealth, an extensive literature survey of metamaterial cloaks has been carried out and reported in this paper along with the basic concept of cloaking. To make the review more effective, the technical papers are classified into three broad sections viz. mathematical modeling, design and simulations, and fabrications and experimental demonstration. Further the design and simulation is focused on different techniques implemented such as finite difference time domain (FDTD), finite element method (FEM), finite integration technique (FIT), inductor-capacitor representation of metamaterial (LC MTM) etc. The review also reports the methods implemented for analysis of metamaterial cloaks with possibility of application to the specific frequency range.
