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.
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...
