Battle Tanks Camouflaged As Ordinary Cars
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.”
