Our paint covers combat vehicles' THERMAL/IR signature.You can think of it as the heat signature. Obviously, if a vehicle has a less detectable heat signature it would be less visible to a sensor that homes in on heat. The kind of sensors that are found on an enemy DRONE, UAV or a heat-seeking missile (anti-tank, etc.).
We're defending the people who are inside the Humvees or inside Combat Vehicles or inside the buildings. We're defending their lives. If they can't be seen, and they can't be sought out by missiles, they can't be hurt.
Something that lessens the heat signature would save lives. It also keeps a vehicle cooler inside and hence protects sensitive instruments, which could also be a lifesaver.
In the face of highly sophisticated modern detection systems, the need for advanced materials to improve camouflage and concealment of signature of military systems is of paramount importance nowadays.
Effective concealment prevents platforms from being detected, identified and targeted, and in this way provide additional protection and survivability without affecting weight and mobility. Consequently, effective concealment improves stealth reconnaissance capability and surprise factor for platforms.
Already in theater and proven the last decade, INTERMAT STEALTH CAPABILITY COATING SYSTEM is a "smart coating system" which provides the absolute solution against modern threats in a force-multiplying package.Modern threats require modern countermeasures while the golden rule of survivability still demands not to be seen. It's far better for the warfighter to rely on passive defense layers than being obliged to make use of weapons and active countermeasures.
As quoted by Gen (ret) Mark A. Milley, Chief of Staff of the US Army "Close combat on sensor-rich battlefields of the future will be faster, more violent and intensely lethal unlike anything any of us have witnessed".
US Marine Corps Commandant, Gen. David Berger has stressed the importance of reconnaissance and counter-reconnaissance capabilities and in his report "FORCE DESIGN 2030" stresses " The hider-versus finder competition is real. Losing this competition has enormous and potentially catastrophic consequences. This makes success in the reconnaissance / counter-reconnaissance mission an imperative for success."
Gen. Eric Smith, assistant Commandant of the US Marine Corps referred to the psychological element of fear and uncertainty " You never know when you're being tracked by an eye in the sky that's just waiting for the signal to strike. And you have to drop your signature. If you're seen, either because you radiate, or because you're physically seen, you're targeted almost immediatelly."
Nothing could describe more accurately modern warfare and STEALTH becomes MORE VALUABLE than ever.
