Ukrainians create invisibility cloak for combat

Ukrainians have created an invisibility cloak protecting against thermal imaging for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov said.

“Ukrainians have created a super defense against Russian thermal imaging cameras and drones with thermal imaging cameras. The cloak blocks the radiation of heat and makes the fighters invisible to the enemy. For example, to snipers or Special Operations Forces groups that perform combat tasks,” the minister said.

The invention is compact and accessible. Its weight is up to 2.5 kg. The cloak has high protection against rain and wet snow. Also, it does not burn and protects against high temperatures. The prototype has already passed successful tests in field conditions.

“The invisibility cloak is just one of the developments that will help save the lives of our soldiers at the front. We need even more,” Fedorov concluded.
