Phantom Bogey; Hyperstealth’s Deceptive Decoy Technology

(March 22, 2014, Vancouver, B.C.) – Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp. President/CEO, Guy Cramer, announces another breakthrough the company refers to as “Phantom Bogey” where a military can deceive the opposing force with full scale decoys where the simulated decoy moves as if it was real, will show up as a target to battlefield optical sensors and will reflect a laser target designator allowing the real personal and equipment to remain hidden or at least mixed in with the decoys diverting fire and focus away to provide higher survivability for the real counterparts.

In the dictionary a Phantom is described as an appearance or illusion without material substance, as a dream image, mirage, or optical illusion (1). Whereas a Bogey is an unidentified aircraft or missile, especially one detected as a blip on a radar screen (2). Combining the two we achieve the perfect decoy, Hyperstealth’s Phantom Bogey comes across as both a target and with substance but it is in-fact neither.

Hyperstealth is a successful Canadian camouflage design company with over three million military issued uniforms and over 3000 vehicles and fighter jets using their patterns around the world.

The First Lightbender

In 2011 Hyperstealth’s Cramer announced Quantum Stealth (Light Bending Material)(3) a story which went viral around the world after a 2012 CNN T.V. story on that technology (4). Many remain skeptical that Cramer has accomplished this, however, members of the Hyperstealth advisory board who have seen and handled the Quantum Stealth material have come forward to confirm his claims: William Jarvis, 19 year Navy SEAL (Retired) who has accompanied Cramer to a number of these demonstrations in the U.S. and Britain. Colin Worth a 20+ year RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) officer (Retired) who accompanied Cramer to the first set of Canadian Government Demonstrations. Master Corporal Matt Pitre, Sargent Scott McLeod both Retired Canadian Special Forces and Brigadier-General Larry Lashkevich, (Canadian Forces Retired) who accompanied Cramer on his second and third demonstrations to the Canadian Military.

The U.S. military (which has budgeted for Quantum Stealth R&D for fiscal year 2015) refuses to disclose the Quantum Stealth to protect the technology and it also prevents adversaries to develop counter technologies.

What’s the reverse of Invisibility? Seeing something that actually isn’t there!

Decoys have been successfully used in military campaigns for thousands of years. The German’s were often tricked by the American “Ghost Army” of World War II, a specialized team of artists, professional theater crews, engineers and actors were put together to come up deceptive methods to turn the German attention away from the actual military objectives.

So what’s the difference with the Hyperstealth “Phantom Bogey” system? Once Cramer understood how to bend light, he was then able to determine how to manipulate light to create a false target instead of bending light around the target as Quantum Stealth does. It does so at minimal cost, power and weight. These are not stationary decoys like a manikin, nor do they take up the space or weight that a typical decoy would use, these are decoys which would look and move just as real as the item, vehicle or person they were simulating.

The Best Offense is a Good Defense

Imagine a tactical compound which does not have enough soldiers to defend it and is about to come under attack; Using the Phantom Bogey technology the defenders are able to simulate 100 extra heavily armed soldiers who now appear to be defending the position. Ten simulated Main Battle Tanks are added to the compound and move into defensive positions, simulated helicopter gunships, takeoff and move over the compound, if the attack comes, the small team defending the position are no longer the primary targets. The defenders could also drop Phantom Bogey’s behind the enemy and pretend to flank them or surround them. Unless the bad guys were within a couple of feet they would not be able to tell the difference between the real targets and the Phantom Bogey’s. A flanking or surrounding move will often force the opposition to move from their cover allowing the smaller group of defenders to acquire a larger portion of the target much easier. A more likely outcome is that the attackers are likely to be overwhelmed with the show of force and retreat.

Scenario 2: A Special Forces Team not knowing how many bad guys are in a room they want to enter and send in the Phantom Bogey simulating their entry to the bad guys with cameras and sensors on the Phantom Bogey’s detecting the exact location of the enemy and any weapons fire location before they actually enter.

Scenario 3: Using the Phantom Bogey technology a Special Forces team is able to infiltrate behind enemy lines using decoy equipment and decoy people which appear to the enemy as their own equipment and soldiers.

Scenario 4: Opponents watch convoys of troop transports full of troops moving to a specific location, it’s actually just drivers with simulated troops in the back. The enemy watching the logistics from a distance assumes a whole Army group is moved to a location as the truck returns with no troops in the back and the location is now just full of decoys of the Army group.

Scenario 5: With limited resources Police are more often alone without a partner in their vehicles and do not have immediate access to backup. With Phantom Bogey a Police partner may be added to provide a perception of more officers and/or you could add simulated K-9 (dogs). In talking to Police, they can have 5 patrol cars show up to a gathering that they need to disperse but the crowd will taunt them until a Police K-9 vehicle shows up, and the crowd will quickly disperse.

Due to operational security currently surrounding these techniques, the methodology of Phantom Bogey will not be disclosed.

Given shrinking defense budgets with expected and substantial downsizing of military personal and equipment, the addition of Phantom Bogey may help to fill in these cracks where perception is viewed as reality.

The military term for the field of camouflage is known as CCD (Camouflage Concealment and Deception). If Quantum Stealth is the optimal Camouflage and Concealment, then Phantom Bogey would be the optimal method of visual Deception.

    This is cool and all, but until I can see it for myself I remain skeptical. I know Guy has shown it off to some folks and they say it works, but that means nothing to me

    • Helmets says:

      And also, couldn’t this be defeated by thermal imaging?

      • JohnC says:

        Cloaking IR is easier. (Very big) If Hyperstealth worked as advertised, I do not believe it would be a problem.

  2. matty says:

    So i’m guessing something with projectors? Like some sort of Total Recall (Arnie version) thing. Sounds like it would only work in certain conditions. Also whatever happened to that invisibility cloak this guy was doing.

  3. Chucker says:

    Sounds kind of like that scene in the original Total Recall where Ah-nold is projecting an image of himself confusing/confounding the bad guys.

  4. Terry says:

    Hey, I saw TuPac at Coachella in 2012. Anything is possible!!!

  5. Shawn says:

    The US Army can’t even land on an effective printed camouflage pattern… Maybe they’re delaying to buy time for the service-wide issue of Predator suits, right?

    • Guy Cramer says:

      Unlikely given their new laws, you will likely see a commercial version of our light bending before the U.S. Military is able to field their versions.

  6. Desert Lizard says:

    The fact that they’ve announced the idea to the world makes me skeptical about it. I keep my advantages secret.

  7. UVRC says:

    Skeptics! What Guy Cramer doesn’t know about deception, isn’t worth knowing.

    No-one outside of Cramer’s organization has ever seen Quantum Stealth. Despite what the article above infers through this statement:
    “The U.S. military (which has budgeted for Quantum Stealth R&D for fiscal year 2015) refuses to disclose the Quantum Stealth to protect the technology and it also prevents adversaries to develop counter technologies.”
    there has never been any statement from the US military concerning Quantum Stealth nor have they voiced any relationship in its development. Please show us the line item budgeting for Quantum Stealth by the US military, Guy. Thanks.

    • Guy Cramer says:

      UVRC, do you what would happen to HyperStealth if I was making up the U.S. Military FY 2015 budgeting, you can’t make something like this up and expect no problems. You may want to consider spouting off on every post about HyperStealth because the internet never forgets. Down the road, sooner or later we will have a commercial version to show and the technology will be confirmed.

      • UVRC says:

        That’s a “No”, you don’t have a line item to show.

        • Guy Cramer says:

          Use the Freedom of Information Act to get the information.

          • UVRC says:

            Guy, that is not how reasoned discussion works. You stated clearly that the US Military budgeted for your product in 2015. If you have proof of this statement, you should offer it as evidence. If you do not have such proof, you should retract your statement as groundless. The onus is on you.

            So, show us the proof or admit that there is no proof. Simple, eh.

  8. XeshaBlu says:

    I would think ‘light bending’ would work more along the lines of a stick-dipped-in-water refractive effect. Make the user look slightly over here, not there. Compensation required to accurately target, advantage user.

    • JohnC says:

      Close. Except instead of moving the object, you’re reducing it to a single (hence invisible) point. There’s a book explaining how — the geometry of invisibility — although it’s (obviously) really mathy.

      The whole “super secret” aspect of Hyperstealth is amusing, since there is copious OSINT (i.e., academic research papers) on the various ways of how to do it. It’s now a matter of engineering, not theory; and the basic principle has myriad applications far more likely to developed in the near future (i.e., better solar cells).

  9. Mayor Gooch says:

    Not sure if I think Cramer is a troll, a self-promoting fake, or both. Maybe it’s the inflated promises of lightbending wizardry. Maybe it’s the poor grammar in press releases. Maybe it’s his awful web page design and layout. Maybe it’s just me, but this guy’s stuff just screams flea market tactical to me. Like some kind of alternate reality King Midas where, instead of turning to gold, everything he touches turns to steaming manure.

  10. Ian P. says:

    So if quantum stealth material gets dirty, does it look like floating dirt/mud/dust?

  11. Bussaca says:

    I hope I get a response from the infamous Guy Cramer.. I hope you have everything you’ve claimed.. I do.. you will have changed the battle field single handedly.. So congrats on doing what no-one else has..

    I just don’t know why you can’t show us.. BAE showed off their thermal masking for a TANK that IR camouflages itself to any smaller object, that can be projected thru the tiles on the side of the tank.. THEY SHOWED IT OFF…on YOUTUBE and guess what.. I still couldn’t build it.. or replicate it.. or have any grasp of how it works other than a rudimentary explanation.. and they’re a several BILLION dollar company.. I don’t see anybody stealing their technology..

    You could show it off.. and no-body , not nobody would know how it works.. and yet you refuse…

    If you had this camo… and it did EVERYTHING you said it does.. you would have a contract tomorrow.. Congress would make an amendment tomorrow, In fact.. if you had this… you wouldn’t even be able to tell us you had it…. it’d be right up there with anti-gravity, and warp drive.. it’d be a national security issue..

    Here I just invented, a fantastical hand held fully automatic rail gun, that never runs out of energy, and can penetrate 5 inches of armor.. Because I said I did… wanna see it.. you can’t.. but I’m not lying.. you just have to trust me.. and invest..

    You continually promise the moon you own.. and you make these empty statements.. EMPTY..

    Put up or shut up… Put up a legit video and i will fly to canada and personally kiss your posterior

    God expects blind faith, you don’t pull the same weight.. SSD says you’re telling the truth.. and really they are the only reason you have any shred of credibility.

    • Guy Cramer says:

      Sorry, I won’t be baited into showing the military version to the public, those that have needed to see it have done so. There is a commercial version I am working on which will have a number of key elements removed and once I’ve secured the intellectual property (IP) for that technology, then and only then will we demonstrate for the public. This is the same thing BAE did with their anti thermal tech., they secured the IP before demonstrating it, I heard about it long before the demo.

  12. Matt says:

    Then there is that strange Youtube that got media play a while back of the guy coming in from stage right and jumping up on an M1 tank that had hit an IED. In the process, he goes from being a wavery blur to a recognizable GI as he approaches the tank.

    • Guy Cramer says:

      That’s a video compression issue, anything moving fast looks transparent, the soldier was not actually invisible. The military would rather not discredit this as they want people to believe they are farther advanced in this then they really are.

    A decoy!? Shazam!
