Battle Tanks Camouflaged As Ordinary Cars

The heat masking technology can make a tank look like a car to a heat 'scope

Apart from making battle tanks invisible to the naked eye, research is on to make them camouflaged to  heat-mapping infra-red devices too.

“Tanks could soon get night time invisibility thanks to a cloaking device that masks their infra-red signature.

Developed by BAE Systems, the Adaptiv technology allows vehicles to mimic the temperature of their surroundings.

It can also make a tank look like other objects, such as a cow or car, when seen through heat-sensitive ‘scopes.

Researchers are looking at ways to make it work with other wavelengths of light to confer true invisibility.”
