Camouflage is an old technique used by warriors to deceive the enemies. It has been used for many years due to its effectiveness. A polish company has developed a new kind of camouflage technique by changing the thermal signature of the tank when observed through infrared or thermal sensors. In fact, the tank is covered with numerous special type of smart tiles. With the push of a button the temperature of these tiles can be varied and the tank’s thermal signature can be changed into a Car. These tiles are hexagonal shaped and completely cover the tank. They are also not very heavy as this tank, named as PL-01, has a total weight of 35 tonnes.

It works by eliminating the radar, infrared and signature of a conventional tank. This disguising tank has been designed and made by Obrum and BAE. The stealth property is only due to these tiles which can control the temperature of the tank. The tanks hides itself by achieving an ambient temperature in the battlefield  heat sensors won’t be able to get its image.

It is done via the heat sensors located on the sides of the tank, the readings from these sensors are then used to make such a thermal signature, using temperature control of the tiles, that the thermal signature blends wholly with the background.
