CANSEC 18 – Solarshield

If you’ve ever been around military vehicles on the summer, you know how hot their exterior surfaces can get. Armored vehicles are even worse.

Rheinmetall Defence’s Solar Sigma Shield is a blanket-like appliqué. It is designed to not only reduce the effects of solar heat in vehicles, but also provide multispectral camouflage. It is also fire resistant and no-slip/no-skid, another major plus for operating on armor vehicles.

Testing by Defence Research and Development Canada Show up to a 30% lower temperature when using Solarshield.

In this case, it is mounted to a Tactical Armored Patrol Vehicle from Textron Systems, currently in service with the Canadian Army.
