The proposed MMA was created from three layers; weft-knitted fabric, silicone, and plain weave fabric and then, it was simulated in Computer Simulation Technology (CST). It was obtained maximum absorption power (99.66%) at 9.38 GHz, and the average absorption power of 81-95% was obtained in the frequency range of 8 to 12 GHz depending on the incident angle in the simulation. The effect of the wearable textile structure on absorption was investigated. When compared with other materials, it can be said that the proposed MMA is broadband, incident angle independent, TE and TM polarization-independent, flexible, breathable, wearable, ease of fabrication, practical, low weight, and cost advantage. With this designed the textile fabric-based MMA, it can be obtained both low reflection coefficients and low transmission coefficients at broadband X-band frequencies. This provides a good solution for the cloaking of radar systems.
