Poor Mans Thermal Hide Camo..

Posted by Ivarr Bergmann on September 16, 2019 at 12:25 PM


Im guilty of forgetting about the thermal threat. Visual CAMCON is something im VERY good at. However the thermal is a real danger in many situation..

This was sent to me by my pal who was a well seasoned and experienced US Army Sniper..Staying hid kept him alive so Ill take his word over anyones. It was inspired by some topics floating around the net-Particularly some vendors selling ppl prefab'ed garbage.You dont have to be a genius or mad scientist to defeat thermals. Below is a MTM hand held thermal test with a woodland camo poncho on one side and desert one on the other with a normal store purchased space balanket in between, and sewn together. It was conducted at about 40 meters in distance, indoors in Alaska for a duration time of  about 30 minutes under the tarp. He used one layer but it would probably be a good idea to double up on the space blanket.


Experiment results.

The above right picture demonstrates the human figure with his head out and body under the thermal shield to show the differences..


Without the homemade Thermal protection...Both an unproteced poncho and direct contact with a poncho.


 

The visual is easy...

Do you happen to know what type of space blanket was used? Was it the super flimsy pop tart wrapper style or the thicker style that has green on one side and shiny on the other?


regular store bought type.. like you'd find in the camping section at Walmart.. thin pop tart wrapper type.
