‘Stealth Sheet’ Makes People And Vehicles Invisible To Drones By Suppressing Infrared Light

The stealth sheet was created by researchers that hope it will be used in battle. As weapons become more sophisticated with the advances in technology, so do the countermeasures to weapons. Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have invented the “stealth sheet,” which is a super thin sheet that can suppress infrared light. This can be used to mask people and vehicles that emit infrared light, which can normally be picked up by drones, heat-sensing night vision goggles, and infrared cameras, according to the Daily Mail. The stealth sheet is made out of a bendable silicon material, masks up to 94 percent of infrared light, and is only a millimeter wide. The co-author of the study, Hongrui Jiang, described the concept behind the invention. “You can intentionally deceive an infrared detector by presenting a false heat signature … It could conceal a tank by presenting what looks like a simply highway guardrail.” So far, the stealth sheet has been tested with a model of the hu…

Elbit Systems’ wholly owned subsidiary in Canada, GeoSpectrum Technologies Inc (GTI), has been awarded a contract by STX Engine Co to deliver an undisclosed number of its Underwater Sound Source Systems (USSSs) and related software packages to the Republic of Korea Navy (RoKN).
In a statement on 31 May Elbit Systems said the USSSs, which are based on GTI’s Towed Acoustic Target, will be supplied by the end of 2018.
The system consists of an acoustic projector body, winch, handling package, and power amplifier, and will be used to test sonar systems for the RoKN’s harbour underwater surveillance system, the company said.
