IAMAS military and civil defense Stealth technology
Relevant physical laws governing the response of coatings to solar and infrared radiation have been reviewed.
The reflection of infrared radiation by paint is controlled primarily by the refractive index and particle size of the pigments in the coating.
Ligaments have been evaluated for reflectance; transparence and hiding power in the near infrared region, and guidelines or pigment selection for various applications given in terms of their optical properties in the near infrared region. Raw materials selection, manufacture and evaluation of coatings have been discussed with respect to tailoring infrared reflectance.
By employing the principles developed herein and using pigments with appropriate properties, organic coatings have been developed which are consistent with the visible color requirements of the any country military standards.
Significant increases in the reflection of infrared radiation have been demonstrated by the new formulations.
The need for a very clear understanding of the threat systems and the operational conditions of service platforms has been emphasized.
It is only with this understanding that optical paint schemes can be devised.
However, it can be stated that the use of the solar infrared reflecting paints described herein would reduce conspicuity of isolated platforms to surveillance and seeker systems operating in the mid and far infrared without detriment to visual camouflage characteristics.
The short electromagnetic wavelengths which characterize near and thermal infrared radiation permit the use of thin coatings to control absorption and reflection of radiation in these regions.
Paints can be designed which increase the reflection of incident solar radiation while retaining the visible properties of color and gloss.
The increased reflection reduces heating and lowers the energy requirements for cooling. In other instances, paints may be required to reduce the emission of thermal infrared radiation and shift infrared emissions to different wavelengths, thus reducing the likelihood of detection.
Coatings may also be formulated to combine reduced emissions in the thermal region with reduced reflection in NIR bands used for laser detection.
Requirements to control infrared properties of coatings arose after the development of infrared photography.
This need led to changes in paint formulation aimed at reducing reflection in the near infrared (NIR) region between 720 and 900 nm. With the increasing use of infrared detectors, paint specifications have retained the requirement for low infrared reflection. However, low NIR reflecting paints strongly absorb the NIR component of solar radiation.
As such, they increase thermal infrared (TIR) signatures and the likelihood of TIR detection as well as adding to the cooling requirements. At the present time, the optimum balance for NIR or TIR signatures has received little attention.
Our technology application examines mechanisms influencing the reflection, transmission and absorption of visible and infrared radiation by paint coatings.
Our technology details a number of new paint formulations to meet defense coating requirements which significantly reduce thermal emissions.
Consideration is also given to the selection of formulations to meet different combinations of threats and environments.
With the application of nanotechnology materials we have achieved the optimum result.
By varying the proportions of our materials, we can offer complete solutions for every defense situation.
Depending on the detection technology of hostile weapon systems, we adjust the impurities of our product materials.
This way our customers have complete protection.
With our technology we can achieve multiple protection against a large number of threats and not limited to IR or Laser technology threats.
Defense products are usually accompanied by high costs.
The goal of our company was to reduce cost and we succeeded.
Low-cost results are the success story of many years of research and simplification of the production process of nanotechnology products.
Applying the existing technology and adding nanotechnology materials to the coating we get the avantage that offers us the leadership on defense market world wide.
Civil Defence Product
The cowardly and ruthless attack on the Saudi oilfields has alarmed us.
In those modern times the battlefield has often been transformed into civilianized infrastructure. It is not our job to examine who may be behind an attack such as that of Saudi Aramco; we are very consider that the used technology for such attacks is common and accessible to all potential enemies.
Whatever who is the enemy; there is a critical common denominator.
That denominator is the target recognition technology. This technology in our sezon is specific 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.
We have studied in depth all the published data about the disgraceful attack in oil critical facilities. We are in position to say that if the oil company had applied our technology to they facilities this tragic event would have been prevented.
Our special high tech paint protects and increases 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.
We are able to provide highly customized cost-effective solutions and actually add an extra layer of defense to valuable military and strategic infrastructure.
An invisible to the enemy Anti-Missile Shield for your critical infrastructure
Several types of certain missiles including cruise type are equipped with infrared homing seekers and devices.
Passive Homing Missiles rely on there being strong contrast changes to track, and anti-thermal coatings can render them unable to “lock on”.
IAMAS managed to develop a unique and unmatched technology in antithermal coatings and thus protect strategic infrastructure from missile threats, effectively, affordably, reliably and above all always “alarmed” against missile threat.
The application of our innovative product can be made on any surface i.e. metallic or building.
It is a permanent countermeasure ready to be applied and integrated onto:
- Oil refineries
- tanks and installations
- Oil pipelines
- Headquarters of military and governmental services
- Military camps and installations
- Water tanks or water facilities
Our innovative coatings act as a “last resort” countermeasure for the particular phase of the missile’s track/trajectory (the Infrared Homing phase) since all other systems have failed to keep missile away from target area.
Our high tech coatings manage to keep “cooler” or similar to the ambient temperature the facilities that friendly forces have decided to hide and enhance in combination to friendly decoy plan the survivability rate of friendly installations.
Our solution is certainly military technology, but the end result, (what anyone can see with their own eyes), doesn’t look like military at all.
Our system it is not a radar system or an anti-missile array weapon deployed at any civil facility.
Our solution it is something invisible that does not provide a militarized image.
