Electronic ink to be used to cloak tanks

Posted on Friday, January 14 2011 @ 19:55:35 CET by

British defence company BAE Systems is working on new camouflage technology that uses electronic ink to project real-time images of the surrounding environment back onto the outside of vehicles. The technology is expected to be ready for the battlefield within five years.
Unlike conventional forms of camouflage, the images on the hull would change in concert with the changing environment always insuring that the vehicle remains disguised.

In Helmand, for example, all armoured vehicle have desert sand coloured camouflage, which is of little use in the "Green Zone", an area of cultivation where crops are grown and the Taliban often hide.

Up until recently such concepts were thought to be the stuff of science fiction but scientists at the defence company BAE Systems now believe battlefield "invisibility" will soon become science fact.
