A Turkish firm, Sun Textile and Research Development Center has developed a fabric that cannot be spotted by radars and thermal cameras.
Turkey plans to sell it to NATO countries. The fabric has been tested by Turkish Armed Forces and is awaiting approval from the Defense Ministry for export, Anadolu Agency reported last week.
Sabri Ünlütürk, chairman of the executive board of Sun Holding, told state-run Anadolu Agency on Nov. 16 that the fabric was invented by two scientists at Teknokent of Hacettepe University in Ankara.
He added that they began producing the fabric in their factory in the western province of İzmir, and came third after the US and Israel in this particular technology.
“We are proud that the Turkish army is using this fabric. The previous products were only for visual camouflage,” Ünlütürk added.
He said the fabric spreads body heat in a way that makes the person wearing it impossible to be spotted by thermal cameras. The tests for the camouflage uniforms are currently underway.
“These uniforms are designed for our soldiers to hide themselves from night vision scopes. Military units are testing them,” Ünlütürk said.
