COUNTER THERMAL/IR THREATS

MAKE IT INVISIBLE

ANTI-DETECTION & ANTI-TARGETING TECHNOLOGY

LOW OBSERVABLE PAINTS

"THE TANK THAT CAN FIND, TARGET AND HIT THE OTHER FROM THE LONGER RANGE IS LIKELY TO PREVAIL IN ANY KIND OF WAR ENGAGEMENT"

All platforms in the air, land and at sea, emit heat in the infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum. This heat emission or more precisely the temperature difference between the platform and the surrounding background is being used by enemy sensors to detect the platform and /or by missile guidance heads to guide themselves to interception. These sensors and homing heads are completely passive in the working mode, i.e. unlike radars their functioning does not provide any warning to the platform under attack.

Our paint covers combat vehicles' heat emmision. 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 type of sensors that are found on an enemy drone or a heat-seeking missile. Something that lessens the heat signature would save lives. We're defending the people who are inside the Humvees or inside Combat Vehicles or buildings. We're defending their lives. It also keeps a vehicle cooler inside and hence protects sensitive instruments, which could also be a lifesaver. Using our unique and unmatched technology in a simple form of stealth anti-thermal/IR coatings protects your assets and strategic infrastructure from EO/IR threats - effectively, affordably, reliably and above all always “alarmed” against detection and targeting from missile threats (anti-tank, cruise, drones, UCAV, etc) .

Our stealth paints are applied on military vehicles of all types, military installations and strategic infrastructure, such as hangars/shelters, air-fields, bunkers, oil and gas installations, missile and radar sites, communications and command & control and more.

In Modern Warfare conflicts, all systems in battlefield are susceptible to thermal/IR sensors and imagers and consequently threats. Even insurgents have access even to handheld thermal imagers nowadays.

Targeting systems are getting highly sophisticated and the ONLY way most end users are trying to defeat them is to build stronger armor against the ammunition.


A high number of casualties are connected to this reality.

  • “KILL chain starts with TARGET ACQUISITION
  • “THERMAL SENSORS are nowadays a key-element of target acquisition process


Whoever the enemy is there is a critical common denominator. That denominator is the target recognition technology. This technology is one and is used by all of the smart weapons systems whether they are produced in the east or in the west.

Our stealth technology is coming to cancel the effectiveness of those smart weapons systems.

INTERMAT stealth paint is the modern protection solution to high tech surveillance and targeting systems. We provide an “apply and forget” solution just by applying our paint on the platform.

INTERMAT stealth technology integrates high Stealth Mobility and high Stealth Capability in an all-in-one combat-proven weightless camouflage system - The utmost stealth protection that warfighters, vehicles, weapon systems and assets can have.

Our Low Observable Paint is a thermal/IR suppressing paint. Easy to apply  with commercially available spray guns and packaged in: 5, 10, 20 liters cans and in Aerosol Spray Cans (0.400 ml)

  • Paint is available in multiple colors which can be custom mixed to meet the customers’ requirements from Camo to Color.
  • Our paint can be applied with a standard sprayer or, for small touch ups and quick concealment it is available in aerosol cans.
  • Our paint applications are endless, from Vehicles to Equipment and Buildings, even on tarmac!

STEALTH MORE VALUABLE THAN EVER

"Close combat on sensor-rich battlefields of the future will be faster, more violent and intensely lethal unlike anything any of us have witnessed."
-Gen. Mark A. Milley, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army

U.S. Marine Corps Commandant Gen. David Berger has stressed the importance of reconnaissance and counter-reconnaissance capabilities and in his report "Force Design 2030" states: "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."

Nothing could describe more accurately modern warfare and STEALTH becomes more valuable than ever.

Stealth technology, also called low observable technology is a set of  techniques & materials to decrease visibility of military objects. the essence of stealth technology in infrared is to control and modify certain physical characteristics of an object in order to keep them balanced or to create new signature, best suited to actual background (tactical) situation.

Stealth in wartime must be a combination of techniques & materials resulting in reducing the thermal contrast between  a platform and  background ΔΤ can be decreased thus lowering the probability of platform's detection and allowing to reduce the distance at which military platforms can be detected by electromagnetic systems, especially EO/IR systems and threats.

Insurgents, in modern Theatres of Operations are increasingly attacking security forces using thermal/IR imagers and sensors combined to heat seeking missiles either stolen from state troops or bought on the black market.
Commanders now worry that this new equipment used by insurgents against security forces puts them in a situation imposing lethal consequences.
With this new battlefield visibility insurgents have quadrupled nighttime attacks according to various military sources.
Advanced equipment, such as thermal/IR imagers, handheld or even attached to a common mobile phone, is being seized by other extremist groups in other global conflict zones.
Additionally to widespread thermal/IR imaging capabilities, heat seeking missiles and warheads also a serious threat against lives, military infrastructure and equipment.

NEW THREATS - NEW DEFENSES

Our Innovative Technology: SEE - WITHOUT BEING SEEN

An anti-detection & anti-targeting technology that protects your military assets and critical infrastructure against EO/IR weapon systems such as anti-tank missiles, missiles, drones, Thermal Imaging Sights (TIS), FLIRs and more.

INTERMAT Low Observable Paints are in full compliance with STANAG 4319: "Counter Surveillance Requirements for Main Battle Tanks - Infrared/Thermal Aspects 1.9 - 14 microns waveband" with the objective to minimize DT platform / background and consequently minimize detection and to degrade performance of heat seeking anti-tank missiles.

Our stealth paints have been successful on extensive and exhaustive tests and evaluations in the field around the world in various environmental harsh conditions with temperatures ranging from minus - 25º C  to plus + 55º C and on different backgrounds & terrains (forest, desert, rocky, snowy, jungle, bushy) against the most modern EO/IR Observation & Targeting Weapon Systems (man-portable & platform-based) those operate both in the 3-5 and 8-14μm waveband.

Battlefield / Warfighting advantages:

  • Defeats Modern EO/IR Sensors / Target Acquisition Systems.
  • Our special high-tech paints protect and increase the survivability of valuable assets against enemy’s EO/IR sensors and heat seeking warheads and missiles. We manage to break the “lock-on” by enemy’s heat-seeking missiles and hence our product is a passive force multiplier for friendly forces.
  • Our stealth technology is coming to cancel the effectiveness of those smart weapons systems.

INTERMAT stealth paint is a product that performs in many sectors besides the anti-thermal/IR field.

Product features and characteristics are:

  • Ease of Application (Spray Gun Paint)
  • Real Stealth Capability in NIR-MIR-FIR waveband (0.7 - 20 microns)

  • Maintenance Free
  • Apply over standard pants or Chemical Agent Resistance Coatings (CARC)
  • Full Vehicle Mobility
  • Robust, effective & leading edge result
  • Available in ALL military hues
  • Ultimate Protection

INTERMAT Low Observable Stealth Coatings minimize Kill Probability against:

  • Unmanned Aerial Vehicles / Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles reconnaissance and hit
  • Thermal Seeking Warheads / Thermal Sensors Detection
  • Anti-Tank Missiles (ATM), Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGM),
  • Anti-Tank Guided Weapons (ATGW)
  • Air to Ground and Ground to Ground Missiles that use EO/IR sensors

More than that, the range of weapons and sensors is highly increased as painted platforms can approach closer to enemy’s lines and reach deeper in enemy’s territory.
Proven in combat, INTERMAT Stealth Technology Coatings once again provide the absolute solution against modern lethal threats in a low-cost & force multiplying package.
