Sticking A Finger In Sauron's Eye
Sauron's Eye in this case being a metaphor for Thermal Imaging, Night Vision or FLIR.
Max Velocity has been developing a thermal barrier tarp for personal use to try and hide one's heat signature from these systems . It looks like just a regular tarp.
Someone put his theory to the test with an inexpensive Mylar "Survival Blanket" mated to an inexpensive tarp against a real world hunter of people, an Apache Attack Helicopter.
The results are pretty amazing, the pilot even knows they are down there.
Max is working on a product that he claims will hide 100% of your heat signature if deployed properly.
I can't wait for his version to come out!
I also hope the man gets filthy rich doing it too.

My thanks to the guys over at Western Rifle Shooters Association and Max Velocity for their hard work and dedication.
