  • Patent number: 4743478
    Abstract: A conventional broad-band camouflage material comprising a base layer, a reflective metal layer and a paint layer which imitates the visible and near IR spectral reflective properties of a natural background and contains binders which are transparent in the far IR range, is improved in the radar spectral range by providing the metal layer in the form of spaced squares or rectangles whose long dimension is smaller than 1/2 lambda of the largest radar wavelength used for reconnaissance and larger than 1/2 lambda of the radar wavelength used for homing missiles and bullets. The base layer consists of woven strips of polyethylene material forming squares or rectangles which are metallized on both sides and then covered with polyethylene film coated with liquid polyethylene adhesive. The adhesive fills in the spaces between the strips thus isolating the squares or rectangles from each other and preventing conductivity.

  • Patent number: 4495239
    Abstract: A camouflage material with wide-band effect ranging from the visible portion of the spetrum, the IR region of the spectrum from 1 to 20 micrometers, as well as the radar region from 3 GHz to 3,000 GHz, consisting of at least a base layer with a vapor deposited metallic reflecting layer having a surface resistivity of 0.1 to 10 ohms per square and a camouflage paint layer applied thereon, the pigments of which have reflectivity that is similar, in the visible and near infrared portions of the spectrum, to that of the natural background, for example, to chlorophyll. In order to insure that such a camouflage material provides secure protection against detection by thermal imaging apparatus, even in the far IR region of the spectrum, without reducing the protective effect in the visible and near IR region of the terrestrial thermal radiation as well as in the radar region, the camouflage paint contains a binder that has good transparency in the spectral regions of the atmospheric windows II (3-5 .mu.

  • Patent number: 4473826
    Abstract: An arrangement for camouflaging military targets in the spectral range of electromagnetic radiation from ultraviolet light to radar waves by contrast reduction between target and background. Emission and/or remission contrast of the target towards the natural background is reduced by applying camouflaging nets which are provided with a specially cut garnishing made of a compound texture in which each single layer affects part of the total electromagnetic spectrum. The layers are arranged so that the camouflaging effect of a single layer does not destroy the others. The reduction of the temperature contrast between target and background of warm or hot targets is achieved by means of heat-reduction carpets. The reduction of temperature contrast of objects currently producing heat is achieved by additionally blowing off hot gases that are surrounded by laminar flows of cold air in special channels where warming up of the camouflaging set-up itself by the hot gases is avoided.

  • Patent number: 4467005
    Abstract: A support net is covered on each side with a carrier web having an external metal IR-reflecting coating and superposed thereon a protective coating which is substantially transparent to infrared radiation. The metal coatings and the protective coatings are thin enough to be substantially permeable to water vapor. The support net carries the load and allows water vapor to pass through because of its open net-like structure.

  • Patent number: 4463653
    Abstract: An arrangement for the protection of vehicles against IR-IMAGING equipment by cooling air, in which the hot or warm exhaust gases are surrounded by a laminar flow of cooling air. The outside air which is drawn in by the cooling mechanism or the motor ventilation system, is first moved over the thermally radiating areas of the vehicle, and then to the cooling unit or the motor itself for combustion. Part of the outside air which is drawn in, serves as the laminar cover stream of the transferred heated-up cooling air and/or the exhaust gases. These exhaust gases, the heated up cooling air and the surrounding outside air represents a coaxial system of gas flows. In the center of this system, flow the exhaust gases, and the heated-up cooling air flows in the central annular portion. The outside air is directed through the outside annular flow portion of the coaxial system.

  • Patent number: 4300160
    Abstract: The thermal imaging device comprises an IR-transmitting scanning polygon arranged behind an objective system. The polygon rotates about two mutually perpendicular axes, i.e. about the optical axis of the device and about the axis of rotation of the scanning polygon which is perpendicular thereto. The rays which emerge from the polygon pass through a reversing optic, which also rotates about the optical axis but with half the angular frequency of the scanning polygon around this axis. Behind this a multichannel IR detector array is arranged, to which a multichannel summing amplifier is connected. The amplifier is synchronized with the frequency of the rotation of the scanning polygon about its own axis. This rotation of the scanning polygon at the same time constitutes the radial deflection frequency for displaying the image.

  • Patent number: 4264929
    Abstract: Scanning speed at right angles to scanning line direction becomes so selected that every line becomes scanned anew by way of the following element in picture direction. Reproduction is carried out by way of a series arrangement of luminous diodes. The luminous diodes are arranged geometrically as to the detector arrangement. For scanning the thermal picture, there becomes used a polygon prism permeable for thermal radiation and beams and for reproduction there becomes used a polygon prism permeable for visible radiation or beams. Both prisms are located on the same pivot axis and the scanning of the thermal picture, as well as the reproduction of the visible picture in line direction occurs by way of turning both polygons and scanning in picture direction occurs by tilting of the pivot axis.
