Hiding from Thermal Drones

Thermal drones allow for a variety of thermal color palettes in order to pick up heat signatures. These thermal color palettes are most commonly used in White Hot, Black Hot and Rainbow HC but also come in a wider variety of other options. As seen in recent footage in the Ukrainian and Russian conflict, thermal drones are being used excessively in order to detect soldiers on both sides of the opposing forces. As these thermal drones are utilized more frequently the ability to hide from them is becoming ever increasingly more important as options are becoming widely available.

The most effective way to hide from thermal drone is to create distance between yourself and a thermal hide such as the Beez Combat Systems Predator Ghillie™ SPECTRALFLAGE BLANKET. Creating a distance between the end user and the hide prevents “thermal loading” or “thermal bleeding” from seeping into the hide itself. When the hide is in contact with the body over time it begins to absorb the body’s heat through a heat transfer thus revealing your position to thermal drones. This can be prevented by hanging the hide and creating a small distance against the positioning in which the thermal drone would be scanning for heat signatures.

In a video review by YouTube channel ‘Two Stack’ a great example is filmed utilizing the Beez Combat Systems’ Predator Ghillie™ SPECTRALFLAGE BLANKET. The video provides a series of stress tests that push the Predator Ghillie™ SPECTRALFLAGE BLANKET to its limits under both thermal and FLIR vision.
