‘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…

Nexter to unveil small tethered UAS concept for special operations

Nexter UAS concept for special operations ile ilgili görsel sonucu

Frence’s Nexter has devised a new concept of operation aimed at extending the capabilities of autonomous systems used to support special operations mobility teams.
The concept is due to be publicly disclosed for the first time at the Eurosatory conference in Paris on 11 June. Company officials told Jane’sthat effort, called Project ‘FINDEAGLE’, would feature a series of layered autonomous solutions to support intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR) scenarios.
To support the concept, Nexter has developed multiple tiers of autonomous vehicles designed to increase special operations units’ situational awareness, according to Sylvain Fesland, Nexter’s head of sales and marketing.
