Military fabrics manufacturer Carrington Textiles, headquartered in Adlington, UK, is launching a new technology for the defence market called Stealth, designed to revolutionise thermal signature management via a highly conductive textile technology for superior thermal shielding on the battlefield.

Stealth is engineered with patented fabric technology that manages dynamic energy waves for mission critical security and protection, mitigating the thermal signature of a soldier from sensors used in the modern battlefield.

Created in collaboration with advanced materials company Noble Biomaterials, Stealth delivers broad-spectrum short, medium and long wave infrared thermal signature management in a lightweight, durable fabric. It exploits Noble’s Circuitex Sigma technology, which is designed to mitigate thermal detection in military environments.

“Initial feedback from wearer trials of this pioneering concept in military field training exercises and in camp observation, concluded that with Stealth, the thermal signature of a soldier was mitigated completely at different distances,” says Carrington Textiles sales director Paul Farrell. “The material almost indistinguishable from the surrounding terrain, regardless of viewing angles.”

“Our patented Circuitex technology is designed to protect soldiers and equipment from detection by advanced sensors,” adds Noble Biomaterial CC Joel Furey. “We are proud to provide allied war fighters an operational advantage in combat situations.”

The new Stealth concept will be exclusively showcased by Carrington at Enforce Tac 2024, which takes place at the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre in Germany from February 26-28 in Hall 7, at stand 340.
