Israeli company Polaris Solutions, a maker of survival products, has unveiled a redesigned camouflage netting that claims to make soldiers virtually “undetectable.”
Developed in partnership with the Israeli Ministry of Defense (MoD), Kit 300 sheet is made of a thermal visual concealment (TVC) material that combines microfibers, metals and polymers to make soldiers harder to see with the human eye and thermal imaging cameras.
The sheet weighs only 1.1 pounds, making it easy for soldiers to roll up and transport it while walking through dangerous war zones.
The soldiers wrap it around them when they are in motion and join their sheets to build a barrier that looks like stone when they set up a position.

Pinkas said the Media Line Kit 300 is capable of carrying up to 500 pounds, can be used as a hypothermia splint and blanket.
The inspiration for Kit 200 came during the Second Lebanon War in 2016, when Picciotto was part of a special unit of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

“You have to be better than the enemy and we understood that there were big gaps in the survivability part,” Picciotto recalled.
“Our product is tested by several units, which I cannot name, and we have joint operations there. “
