The Russian military team up with Rostec to develop a new textile material that can camouflage military equipment with its chameleon like qualities.
The fabric properties are said to be able to adapt to the colour of their surroundings, at this stage of early development this will be used towards the Russian military however this could be applicable for many other uses in the future.
Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia Viktor Yevtukhov said the new textile material provides opportunities for the design and production of the so-called smart clothing. “In this case, we are talking about an interesting and unique development, which is capable of radically changing the concept of design and production of clothing. Such unique textile materials will be especially in demand during the production of clothing, particularly those, which can withstand extreme temperature conditions or radiation,” he commented.
