HyperStealth to Introduce INVISIB – Commercial Variant of Quantum Stealth

Friday, April 11th, 2014

HyperStealth announced on their Facebook page earlier today that they would release a commercial version of their long promised Quantum Stealth. I for one am looking forward to the release simply so I can finally speak openly about the technology.

With authorization from the U.S. Military last week, Hyperstealth INVISIB will be the first commercial variant of Quantum Stealth (Light Bending Material). A confidential version with a higher capability will be available for Law Enforcement/Military Regular Forces and a highly advanced classified version will be available for Tier 1 and Tier 2 Special Forces Teams in Canada and the U.S. only.

Hyperstealth is now in the process of establishing the Intellectual Property (IP) for INVISIB, and only after the IP is secured will the product be demonstrated to the public.

Hyperstealth was not allowed to pursue the IP prior to this recent authorization as Canada does not allow patents to be taken out on classified technology and while the U.S. does allow patents on classified technology, it would have to be stamped secret and would not allow Hyperstealth to secure worldwide protection.

Phantom Bogey; Hyperstealth’s Deceptive Decoy Technology

Friday, March 28th, 2014

(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.

US4CES Bravo and Charlie Variants Released For Sale

Monday, December 16th, 2013

ADS Inc. and US4CES designer Guy Cramer, have decided to use Hyperstealth’s print on demand process developed by Cramer, President/CEO of Hyperstealth to release 45 new US4CES patterns in two new series: 15 US4CES Bravo Series patterns and 30 US4CES Charlie Series patterns to the commercial market and for printed camouflage trial material to foreign countries outside of the U.S. looking for a new advanced camouflage uniform.

The Alpha variants of US4CES are finalists in the still unresolved US Army Camouflage Improvement Effort and are not yet available for sale. However, with any of these patterns, you get the same technology improvements offered to the Army but in different colorways. Another difference between Alpha and Bravo, is in the color layering, reversing the order of lightest to darkest colors (the patterns are identical other than the color order). Additionally, none of these are NIR compliant.

BRAVO

The Delta variants were also developed for the US Army and in internal testing Cramer found that they performed better. The Charlie variants have been released for sale commercially. The difference between US4CES Delta and Charlie is in the color layering, reversing the order of lightest to darkest colors.

Guy Cramer’s Investigation of the US Army Camouflage Improvement Effort – Part 6

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

U.S. Army Phase IV Baseline Patterns, will the Army have to settle with these?
by Guy Cramer, President/CEO of HyperStealth Biotechnology Corp.

Guy Cramer continues his investigation into the US Army’s Camouflage Improvement Effort in Part 6 of his series. He brings up some very compelling points. Now that the Army has indefinitely delayed the announcement of their camo findings, they rush headlong into impending legislation requiring them to adopt a common pattern and uniform with the other services. The time to assume leadership in clothing US servicemembers for combat is now.

This isn’t a performance issue like the Individual Carbine. They’ve done the research. They have the solution. All the Army has to do, is act. Otherwise, everyone may be stuck with second best; the baseline patterns that the Army’s effort was meant to replace.
