New Army Camo Makes Targets Invisible

New Army Camo Makes Targets Invisible

'Quantum Stealth' is a new material from Hyperstealth that can render the target invisible by bending light waves around them.

A new high-tech material from Canadian camouflage design company Hyperstealth makes the target completely invisible. This is a growing and promising field, as researchers from Duke University unveiled a similar technology earlier this month.

‘Quantum Stealth’ bends light waves around the target and removes their visual, infrared, and thermal signatures, as well as their shadow. It also works against military IR scopes and Thermal Optics. This light bending technology renders the target invisible. Business Insider reports that Hyperstealth claims the only way to find a person hiding beneath the material is to literally trip over them.

New Camouflage For The Army That Actually Blends Into The Environment

Command groups within the U.S. Military and Canadian Military, plus the Federal Emergency Response Team (Counter Terrorism) have viewed demonstrations of the material. It works without cameras, batteries, lights or mirrors, and is both lightweight and inexpensive.
