Indivisibility cloaks now no longer belong in the realm of fantasy and science fiction as Canadian camouflage company, Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp officially apply to patent their latest camouflage.
“Quantum Stealth” is the name Hyperstealth has given to their light bending material. Quantum Stealth renders the target completely invisible by bending the light waves around the target, removing not only visual, infrared (night vision), shortwave infrared, ultra-violet and thermal signatures but also the target’s shadow.
In 2012 commands from USA’s and Canada’s military both confirmed that the light and rigid material works without cameras, batteries, lights or mirrors as well as works against military thermal optics and infrared scopes. There is also over 100 minutes of footage that demonstrate the material on Hyperstealth’s website.
Hyperstealth has now announced four patent applications directly relating to Quantum Stealth, that are currently pending.
The first patent being Quantum Stealth, capable of hiding a person, vehicle, aircraft, ship or building. Hyperstealth’s President/CEO, Guy Cramer is the inventor of the material, which has 13 versions which the patent discusses and also allows for many more variations. The material is also relatively inexpensive and is capable of working in any environment, season and time of day.
The second patent is a “Solar Panel Amplifier” which utilises a lens material crucial to all four patents that surpasses the maximum output of the main solar panel types; thin film, monocrystalline and polycrystalline. The maximum output is determined by the amount of solar radiation available on the equator at noon on a clear day. The tests of the material were done near Vancouver, Canada with a third of the solar radiation available compared to the equator.
The third patent is called, “Display System” which is capable of producing holographic-like images with the additional use of a powered projector. Hyperstealth say the patent office has already reviewed this patent application.
The fourth patent is, “Laser Scattering, Deviation & Manipulation” which splits a single laser into 3 880 000 smaller lasers. This can be added to a laser detection and ranging (LIDAR) system which normally uses one laser, a spinning mirror and an optical receiver to determine the surroundings. LIDAR systems have applications in a wide-range of fields such agriculture, autonomous vehicles, geology, military, mining, robotics, transport and video gaming. For autonomous driving, the patent suggests that increasing one laser to millions should greatly increase resolution at much longer distances, allowing computers to determine dangerous conditions or objects much more quickly, meaning safer transit for both the vehicle, pedestrians and animals near roads.
“Laser Scattering, Deviation & Manipulation” also has application in aircraft detection and tracking and, as the patent suggests, would work on conventional or stealth aircraft from long distances.
