Israel’s New Camouflage Technology Can Make Soldiers Virtually ‘Invisible’

The Israeli Ministry of Defense (MoD) and Polaris Solutions, an Israeli survivability technology company, have developed ‘The Kit 300,’ a new 3D camouflage technology that could make soldiers invisible during covert military operations.

Israel’s new Camouflage Technology can make soldiers virtually ‘invisible’

Polaris Solutions, an Israeli survivability products company, has developed a camouflage technology that makes soldiers virtually undetectable on the battlefield.

Kit 300, an innovative camouflage sheet made of a material that provides multispectral concealment, was recently unveiled in collaboration with the Defense Ministry.

Nothing else like Polaris Solutions’ camouflage sheet is currently available on the market, according to the company.

Asaf Picciotto, co-founder and CEO of Polaris Solutions, told The Media Line, “As far as we know, or as far as we saw in other armies around the world, we are very unique.” “We actually registered a patent on it in many countries around the world to establish that.”

The thin sheet is made of thermal visual concealment (TVC) material that includes metals, polymers, and microfibers. Soldiers are much more difficult to see with the naked eye and with thermal imaging equipment as a result of TVC.

As a result, it can be used in a wide range of military scenarios for counter-surveillance.

During the Second Lebanon War in 2006, the technology’s concept was born. Picciotto was in a special IDF unit at the time, and he witnessed firsthand how soldiers on the ground needed better protection from thermal cameras and night-vision equipment.

Picciotto recalled, “You have to be better than the enemy, and we understood that there were big gaps in the survivability part.”

Polaris Solutions was established a few years later, in 2010, and is now based in Caesarea, Israel’s port city. The company, which also makes tough and durable tactical textiles and patented military products, has enlisted the help of several former IDF soldiers with special forces training.

Kit 300 was created specifically to address new and evolving battlefield challenges.

The Media Line spoke with Yonatan Pinkas, director of marketing at Polaris Solutions, about how camouflage nets haven’t changed much in the last 50 years.

He went on to say, “We wanted to bring in a new type of material.” “As a result, TVC was born.”
Each sheet has two distinct colour schemes: one for dense vegetation and the other for more desert-like landscapes. In addition, the company creates patterns and colours that are tailored to the needs of each client and their location.

The sturdy material can be folded into a compact roll or moulded into three-dimensional shapes. It’s also waterproof and can be made into a stretcher to transport wounded soldiers on the battlefield.

Pinkas added, “It has added value in medical use.” It can, for example, carry up to 250 kilogrammes, be used as a splint to immobilise a broken bone and be used as a hypothermia blanket, according to him.

Polaris Solutions collaborates with Israel’s defence industry as well as international government agencies, such as special forces units in Canada and the United States. Jag Hide is the international name for Kit 300.
“Some units, which I cannot name, are testing our products, and we have several mutual operations there,” Picciotto said.

Other tech innovators have recently made groundbreaking forays in the stealth materials arena, despite the company’s TVC products being unique.

Last year, the Canadian firm HyperStealth Biotechnology Corporation unveiled Quantum Stealth, a light-bending material that appears to make a person vanish. The invention is referred to as a “broadband invisibility cloak” by the company, though its effectiveness is largely dependent on the angle and distance from which it is viewed.

Before a true invisibility cloak can be developed, a number of technical challenges must be overcome.

While invisibility was once only science fiction or fantasy concept, Polaris Solutions has revealed that it is working on products that could make the concept a reality in the near future. According to Picciotto, developing “real deep tech” that can be turned into a line of products will take between five and ten years.
