Daily Telegraph: British Armed Forces experienced in the field “invisibility cloak”

The British military tested in field conditions a high-tech camouflage system that hides three-dimensional objects (humans, equipment) "in the optical and thermal ranges," masking them under a pile of stones, transmits RIA News message of the newspaper Daily Telegraph.


Daily Telegraph: British Armed Forces experienced in the field “invisibility cloak”


“In recent years, physicists have created many devices that make objects invisible in a given radiation range. As a rule, the functionality of such invisible cloaks is extremely limited - some of them are able to hide only two-dimensional objects, others work only with a limited viewing angle or a strictly specified temperature. Partial invisibility is provided by the properties of the so-called metamaterials - special compounds with exotic optical properties, ”writes the publication.

According to the newspaper, one of these devices has already reached the level of practical use - “this is a special three-dimensional material Vatec, developed by the American company VCS and capable of replacing the special paint, thermal reflectors and other masking elements that snipers use to hide themselves from the eyes of the enemy” .

The publication notes that the “cloak” of Vatec in its appearance “resembles a pile of stones or rocks that look three-dimensional due to the structure of this fabric and the way it interacts with light and heat.”

According to the military, this masking device made them completely invisible. Colleagues who tried to find the snipers hiding at the test site could not find them even with a thermal imager.



Test participants believe that the Vatec camouflage system is fully prepared “for use in desert and mountainous countries, including Iraq and Syria,” where it can be used against terrorists.

                For such a case, well-functioning camouflage devices - Voivod's missiles - have long been invented. Several combat launches and Britain will be sufficiently qualitatively disguised as one large stone in the middle of the sea-okiyana.

              Complete nonsense, to detect such disguised objects, there is a spectrophotometric color analyzer (spectrophotometer). Since this camouflage cannot self-adjust to the surrounding landscape (like a chameleon), it is enough for the device to highlight this heterogeneity on the ground in order to catch the artificiality of the origin. This device only needs to be adapted for military use.

              wassat Wait - such cloaks were already in the Lord of the Rings, the Britons seemed to have temporarily occupied a couple of three cloaks from Hollywood.
              But in reality, it’s very difficult to hide the heat well, if you manage to completely maintain heat dissipation on a person, he will die from overheating, the liver releases a lot of heat in the process of its work, like the heart. If you try to bring the heat generated by a person to ambient temperature, then you need to drag the heat exchanger with a refrigerator. In short, it is a very complex and heavy construction, it is difficult to talk about the mobility of the sniper group.
              More sensitive thermal imagers with computer processing of parameters plus the operation of BLO from different angles - and the corresponding heat source will be detected.

From under this, the first NATO Ach, from the slope, was mined by VOG. After that, they suspended their operation. Goal for fiction is cunning. But me personally, this soldier’s invention saved more than once. By the way, the Anglicans have this fabric for a long time, and coveralls and stuff. This is just an improvement for certain tasks.

    This all violates the laws of physics a little. If heat is not radiated, the temperature "under the cape" begins to rise. Warm air rises, and a good thermal imager SEES it! I was convinced myself that a man hiding behind a tree betrays himself in the autumn forest with a warm exhalation. Again, some "invisible", such as F 117, which cannot be seen only by AMERIAN locators in certain ranges.

        Water completely shields thermal radiation. So that wet padded jacket and panties completely hide you.
        As for the practical application of these materials ... well, unless in an ambush they will be yen. And then .., experience is often more important and more effective.
        I don’t want to count for a long time. My grandfather has a reward for a sniper pair. They were simply told that the Germans had some kind of advanced sniper on the front line. Before our advance. It had to be neutralized. Therefore, all the hunters received in their sector, where they had to determine the probable locations. That grandfather was not mistaken. The couple was where he calculated. Disguise did not help them)))

      smile So exhale through the mask, already something. This is a matter of skill. On the march is unlikely to disguise. In schools, an observer is approached at a detection distance of one. It is of course important to know where it is in azimuth.

      If, I’m not mistaken, the anti-sniper struggle is carried out in areas. Shot, otvetka from the same mortars. And, there they see thermal imagers or not, it doesn’t matter. For killers, such a cape is suitable, but in combat conditions?

        In terms of area, this is good, but first you need to understand where the shot came from, or to beat it in white light, like a pretty penny., Where there was no sniper at all

        For a scout, a sweet deal. For target designation. Yes, and sniping is different. Great thing, but far from new. Novelty they call drawing on fabric, three-dimensional image.

    A typical PR action is wishful thinking. It is even theoretically impossible to create a material that completely absorbs the entire spectrum of radiation (absolutely black body). Therefore, it is theoretically impossible to become absolute "invisible". It is no coincidence that attempts to create "invisible" aircraft and naval vessels fail - it is quite possible to reduce visibility in radar ranges, but it is impossible to close the entire spectrum of electromagnetic waves at any level of technology development - technologies for detecting "invisible" objects are also not worth it. place, on the contrary, they are developing at a faster pace! Remember, at least, anti-sniper technologies that use such exotic physical principles and phenomena that adding a couple of even more exotic (?) To them is unlikely to be a big job for sophisticated gunsmiths.

      Well, not absolutely, but close to that. Surrey NanoSystems writes: “The new development produced such a black coating that even spectrometers cannot measure it. The new material does not reflect the beam of a high-power laser pointer. We have never received material that cannot be detected on an infrared spectrometer. ”

    A good thing, no words. Only now the British guys, together with the American ones, forgot to clarify a little, namely: The object located under this camouflage is invisible as long as it is hidden by it completely and does not move. The protruding barrel of a rifle, for example, unmasks those who have hidden from thermal detection. As well as moving under this cloak is not recommended. And in the end, it was originally created for technology (engines turned off) and for masking firing points such as bunkers, bunkers before the start of fire contact.

    PS I completely forgot, this thing is very dependent on ambient temperature (the higher the degree, the better).

      How? Will you, this barrel, be specially heated with a lighter, or friction? They rubbed her palms, stuck out the trunk, giggled, hid it. A man sits at the thermal imager and becomes furious, the trunk appears in the void and disappears. Oh no no no.

      The thermal imager is not a night vision device, it is a thermometer whose interface is displayed. It shows the difference in temperature. Against the general background of average temperature, cold and hot areas will stand out, and the processor will build an object shape on the screen. And why the heck to mask a long-term firing point, so if it is already protected from this by its design and temperature does not differ from the general background, and during battle, you can’t hide the temperature of the shots.

        what Metals are very good heat conductors, in fact, if the cape has a different temperature, and it should be different in theory, then the weapon will heat up to this temperature, with a high temperature difference, this trunk will burn like a traffic light on TV

    Guys, I regularly get out into the forest and the city (center of Russia) and saw only a couple of stones the size of a car, in the city center there are 2 monuments, no more than a foot in the forest. Then, how to get used to everything with this camouflage, yeah, there’s a pile of stones, well, shandarkhnite on it just in case.

    According to the military, this camouflage device (a special three-dimensional material Vatec, developed by the American company VCS) made them completely invisible. Colleagues who tried to find snipers hiding at the training ground could not even find them using a thermal imager.

    There is work for our Stirlitz, however! Of course, there are different sanctions, the Cold War. But WHEN was ours easy? And you could ...!

    This is already serious - do not care about Britain, there’s another thing, all this will give a jump to the hard development of such a special. themes as individual stealth. Britain is NATO, NATO is covered in blah blah blah democratic-terrorism, it’s bad that they are succeeding in something.

    It is completely invisible in nature. There is always a means of detection. Only dark energy is invisible. But it will eventually be discovered in practice.

    About English scientists with their cape ... and overcoats and I will not speak good
    I was much more amused by the comments.
    Directly slipped off the couch .... especially the pearl about the fact that the thermal imager could not find them - they cooled off, so ... wassat
    ...
    Now, securing such a cloak, we’ll cover with it the best anti-sniper rifle - the T-90 tank ... or say Armata - and we will observe from the side ...
    as from a void appears - then the trunk .... then the gun ... soldier

    Interesting technology, metamaterials to life. Soon I think there will be real camouflage uniforms not visible in the optical range. For example, according to the following scheme. On the helmet (helmet) there are 2-3 wide-angle video cameras that take pictures of the surroundings within 2-3 steps and a fabric with a bunch of optical fibers (or LCD micro screens) reproduces this picture.

      laughing I immediately remembered something of the "Predator" with his helmet and switching between different visors (and he also had an echo sounder), switched to another mode and there was a "scarecrow" on you in the middle of the forest and shone like a Christmas tree in the new year.

    The Russian "Cape" from the research institute has been at least 20 years old, another thing is that the RF Ministry of Defense is greedy with $ and buys piece by piece (does not apply to promising technology). It is necessary for the designers to throw an idea with camouflage hi
