The Ministry of Defense showed tests of new army equipment with electric heating

34

The Ministry of Defense demonstrated tests of the latest domestic army equipment with autonomous electric heating. The tests, as noted, were carried out in the Central Military District (Central Military District).


On the footage, which was presented by the country's main defense department, one can see that heating elements pass through the fabric of the outfit. Heating is carried out by converting electrical energy into heat. The system is "powered" by a rechargeable battery, which can also be seen in the footage at the moment when a soldier puts on the latest equipment. A small battery is attached to the suit with a special Velcro strap. In addition to the underwear, the fighter's outfit also includes peculiar socks.

Heating can be turned on while directly in the cold. For this, a heating control system with three buttons is provided, which can be easily pressed even in severe frost.


As noted, parts of the suit can be independently heated. The maximum heating temperature corresponds to the human body temperature - about 36 degrees. If you switch the mode to a minimum, then the system will provide heating to temperatures of about 32 degrees Celsius. At the same time, the system warms up to the desired temperature in a matter of minutes (up to 3 minutes). It can provide a soldier with heat on a double battery charge for several hours, including in conditions when the air temperature is below minus 30 degrees. The specific time of use depends on the air temperature and the mode of operation.

It is reported that the next stage of testing is in arctic conditions.

      In a thermal imager, even without this equipment, the fighter is good-looking, this is not a reason to freeze the soldiers. Thermal masking is far from being relevant everywhere. For example, in the same guard or when driving non-insulated vehicles.

          There are, but they are expensive, complex and hardly applicable in practice.
          Basically, this is shielding and all kinds of ineffective "capes" for armored vehicles.
          I don’t even remember individual outfit with thermal masking elements right off the bat, although they probably also exist in projects.

        The colleague is right.
        By the way, this equipment has one more definite plus. It is convenient for her to "mask" false positions.

      In winter conditions, lying in the snow at 10 or 40 degrees Celsius, both sides of the battle must warm up with something so as not to die. Those. both sides will be on equal terms and all that remains is to rely only on the speed of detection of the enemy by the opposite side.

          It is written "... for a few hours ...".

          In general, if such uniforms are compact and comfortable to wear, in civilian life it will find application in many industries. The only question is the price and cost, as well as the weight of the spare batteries.

            I love these streamlined phrases, as you want and understand. Two hours is also a few. And now the question: "Who and where will charge these batteries?"

        And I immediately have associations that the sentries need this miracle, otherwise 30 years have passed, but as it was yesterday: they went on guard in overcoats and boots at -15, and by night -43, a post for the protection of artillery warehouses, an all-metal tower ( including gender) ...
        Sheepskin coats with felt boots? No, you haven't heard. Only shortened shifts and a complete understanding of the Chukchi people (what I see, I sing, so as not to go crazy). At least these socks are like that :)

    Whether it's true or not, I don't know. There was such a bike in the 70s of the last century.
    An electrically heated clothing set was created. For trial operation, a certain amount was distributed to the builders of the BAM. It's time to summarize the results of the experiment. The inventors did not find a single set. The kits have evaporated. laughing
    If you get such clothes, lightweight, comfortable, with an acceptable period before recharging, then this will be a revolution in winter clothing. Everyone needs this, and the military, and builders, and tourists ....

      More than 30 years ago I heard (did not see it alive) that the flyers have electrically heated overalls. It was said that the battery was about the size of a palm. I don’t know if it’s true or not, but then I dreamed of this for winter fishing. It seems to be, according to the stories, it was outwardly like our usual, blue, but made in Poland.

      I think it's good news, not only for the army. Sooner or later, this or an analogue will leak into the civilian sale and, finally, I will buy myself one for fishing.

        I saw this on NATO officers for the first time in the late 1990s. Only instead of socks there were heated ankle boots. In the evening, they put it all on recharging, like mobile phones. Jacket, pants, ankle boots - in itself, everything is thin, not for the weather. There was no room for a thick liner. Not appreciated.

        Already on sale and in abundance. For example, a heated suit for fishing is about 14 rubles.

        Heated clothes for a hundred years at lunchtime, who wanted to have bought it for a long time, even for a fish, at least wherever. The choice on the market is huge, from warm insoles for any everyday footwear, and ending with full-fledged "Arctic" overalls with a special class of thermal protection.

      "Penguin" such a suit was called .. - a vest and slippers on wires. Board powered. Issued to tractor drivers and tractor drivers. In Antarctica and the Arctic for sure. I can't say about the army team. Maybe the pilots were given out ... there was no adjustment in them. -fried to the fullest .. Such a house lies. in cellophane, not worn ..)

        With the Penguins came the temperature regulator. A regulator was connected to the 12-volt on-board network, and then the penguin was connected to the carrying socket. It's just that someone lost instructions, someone stole a box with an incomprehensible turntable, suddenly it will come in handy at home. And someone just did not understand what it was.

      The bike is a bike. If something was given out for free, then you will be included in a dozen statements, you will sign in a dozen forms. The old overalls were forced to surrender, or the cost was calculated if the deadline did not expire.

    No offense! What is this nonsense?
    According to the system that the author wrote, This is the highlight of the reconnaissance unit in the field!
    There is nowhere else to apply such an advanced system!
    The thermo warmer has a big profit.
    The point in this stuffing?
