  • An enemy convoy rolls to a stop, the commander of  the lead vehicle popping open the hatch on his IFV  

  • and scanning the desert with his binocularsthe coast is clear, no sign of American forces  

  • anywhere. Sliding back inside his vehicle he gives  the command for the convoy to begin rolling again.

  • Suddenly there's the roar of an M1 Abrams  firing its main gun, and the rearmost vehicle  

  • goes up in flames. A second roar from a different  position, and the lead vehicle is destroyed. The  

  • enemy convoy is in full panic now, but with  both the lead and rear vehicle destroyed,  

  • the rest of the convoy is having a hard time  breaking from the tightly packed formation.  

  • Enemy troops scan the desert all around themwhere in the world is the firing coming from?!

  • Then they see it- an M1 Abrams  materializing out of thin air,  

  • followed be a second, then a third and  a fourth. From an opposite direction,  

  • Bradley infantry fighting vehicles seem to  shimmer into existence from empty desert.  

  • The enemy is surrounded, but how in the world  did the American forces become invisible?!

  • This scenario may seem like something out  of Star Trek or Harry Potter, but a Canadian  

  • company called Hyperstealth Biotechnology Inchas made it a reality. The new technology is  

  • called Quantum Stealth, and it can actually make  something as large as a tank completely invisible.  

  • How you may ask? Well let's find outRemember this is real technology that  

  • could be used by the military in the next few  years, so forget about the fantasy and science  

  • fiction worlds of television and movies, real  life is about to get a lot more interesting.

  • The exact way the material that makes  Quantum Stealth and invisibility  

  • possible is kept secret by the inventor  and CEO of Hyperstealth Biotechnology Inc,  

  • Guy Cramer. The company is based  out of British Columbia, Canada,  

  • and over 3000 military vehicles are currently  using camouflage designs created by this company.

  • Quantum Stealth has been examined by two separate  command groups within the United States Military  

  • and the Canadian Military. All personnel  who have seen the actual Quantum Stealth  

  • material have verified that the  technology is real and works.

  • But how does it work? That is the mysteryWe will break down the science and then  

  • examine how the technology could be used  in different military scenarios. Again,  

  • this is not science fiction. This is real  technology that makes things invisible using  

  • real science. What a time to be alive!

  • From the little we know about Quantum Stealth  one thing is clear, the way the material makes  

  • things invisible is through the bending of lightThe material that is used is kept secret, but the  

  • principle is actually all around us in natureThe Quantum Stealth material refracts light  

  • using a series of small lenses. Refracting is the  fancy scientific term for the bending of light.  

  • The Quantum Stealth material surrounds whatever  object the military wants to make invisible,  

  • then the material refracts light  around the object. But how does this  

  • make the object invisible? First  we need to discuss light waves.

  • The way you, and I, and every other human sees is  by gathering and focusing light using our eyes.  

  • When light comes in contact with an object  it bounces off of it in all directions.  

  • If you are in the reflected light's path  some of that light enters your eyes,  

  • your brain interprets the light waves, and that  is how you see everything around you. This is an  

  • oversimplification, but is the quick version of  how we see objects. The key to Quantum Stealth  

  • is that instead of allowing light to bounce off  an object, the Quantum Stealth material bends  

  • light around the object. Therefore, if you have  a tank surrounded by the Quantum Stealth material  

  • light is bent around the tank. If the light  never reaches the tank, there is no light  

  • bouncing off of it to be sent to your eyes. The  tank is invisible to you, and everyone else.

  • As we said earlier this is not some science  fiction concept. Refraction of light happens  

  • all of the time. We can prove it. Take a glass  of water and stick a straw in it. Then look down  

  • into the glass of water. You will see that the  straw above the water is in one spot and the  

  • straw below the water has shifted to the side. Did  the actual straw bend? No. The light is being bent  

  • as it passes through the medium of air to the  medium of water. The light your eyes capture  

  • to see the straw has been bent as the light  moves from one medium to another. Cool right?

  • Quantum Stealth works the same way. The  Quantum Stealth material is made up of  

  • lenses to create a medium that does not  reflect light back or let light through.  

  • Instead the material bends light around it, making  any object on the other side completely invisible.

  • For those of you who are still with  us, and we hope that's everyone,  

  • things are about to get a little crazier. If the  refraction of light can make things invisible,  

  • then why don't you become invisible every  time you jump into a pool, or ocean,  

  • or any other medium besides air? Clearly this  doesn't happen, and if it does happen to you  

  • send us an email so we can make a video about  how you have broken the laws of physics. Instead,  

  • when you enter a new medium light is bentThe light still reflects off of you, just at a  

  • different angle. You are still visible, you just  look like you're in a slightly different spot.

  • The Quantum Stealth material is unique in the  way it bends light. It creates what is called  

  • a “dead spotbehind it. This is how the  Quantum Stealth material causes objects to  

  • become completely invisible. When light enters the  lenses it is refracted in two opposite directions.  

  • This creates thedead spotin the middle of  where the light waves have separated. Therefore,  

  • anything that is placed within thedead spot”  is invisible since no light waves reach it. And  

  • since radar, night vision, and thermal sensors  all use a form of light wave to detect objects,  

  • Quantum Stealth also makes things it's surrounding  invisible to those forms of detection as well.

  • There is no power source, the Quantum  Stealth material is paper thin,  

  • and Guy Cramer has reported it  is inexpensive. Quantum Stealth  

  • will most likely be the military's  choice of camouflage in the future.  

  • But what would they use it for? It is a really  cool concept, but is it practical? Let's see.

  • Imagine a pilot flying over enemy territory. They  are taking reconnaissance pictures and gathering  

  • intel. There is suddenly a malfunction in the jetSparks start spraying out of the flight counsel.  

  • The only way the pilot can keep from catching fire  in the cockpit is to eject. The pilot pulls the  

  • handle on the side of their seat, the canopy  flies up, and they are ejected into the air.

  • The enemy will see the plane  crash, but what about the pilot?  

  • Large parachutes are easy to spot against a blue  sky. But what if the parachute was invisible?  

  • The parachute could be made out of the Quantum  Stealth material allowing the pilot to safely  

  • glide down to the ground without being spottedThen the pilot can hide under the Quantum Stealth  

  • parachute making them completely invisible to  all forms of visual sensors, including eyesight.  

  • The pilot calls for extraction and safely  waits, undetected, until the cavalry arrives.

  • Another thing to think about is the  tactical advantage Quantum Stealth  

  • could give special forces units. An entire  boat of Navy SEALs could be docked off shore.  

  • The boat is using Quantum Stealth so it  is invisible. Normally special forces  

  • teams work under the cover of night, but  now they can be invisible at any time of  

  • day. They plan their mission to take  place in the middle of the afternoon  

  • when their target is most vulnerable. The SEAL  team is outfitted in Quantum Stealth dive suits.  

  • They swim ashore undetected, complete their  mission, and return to their invisible boat.

  • The best part is that by the time the enemy  realizes what happened, it will be too late.  

  • The SEAL team will already be safely back at  base. When the enemy goes to review camera logs  

  • and sensors nothing comes up. The Quantum  Stealth made sure the SEALs were invisible  

  • to all types of sensors. It even kept them  from casting shadows. They are invisible and  

  • undetectable. The enemy is baffled by the  unexplained infiltration of their outpost.

  • Since the Quantum Stealth material  is versatile, and relatively cheap,  

  • the military may use it to camouflage larger  objects. Take a plane hangar for instance.  

  • The United States Airforce could build and  store prototype and cutting edge aircrafts  

  • without the enemy ever knowing. If the  whole hanger was surrounded by Quantum  

  • Stealth material the enemy would have no  clue it was even there. The hangar would be  

  • undetectable by aerial surveys and satellitesThe military could work in complete secrecy.

  • We talked about camouflaging one tank in Quantum  Stealth, but what about a whole battalion?  

  • What if a group of tanks could infiltrate enemy  lines and get into striking positions without ever  

  • being noticed? The only indication that the tanks  were there would be from the sound of the engines  

  • and the firing of their cannons. But at that  point it would be too late for the enemy.  

  • Even early warning detection systems wouldn't be  able to pick up the signatures of the battalion  

  • of tanks. Each one would be outfitted  with its own Quantum Stealth technology.  

  • They would be able to fire, reposition, and  fire again taking out any enemy in their path  

  • without being seen. The tanks would  be undetectable except by sound.

  • This brings up another important point about  Quantum Stealth. The technology is not only  

  • effective at making military assets invisiblebut the psychological warfare that goes along  

  • with it could be just as devastating as bullets  and bombs. Imagine fighting an enemy you cannot  

  • see or detect. Military forces with Quantum  Stealth can move freely across battlefields  

  • and infiltrate bases without leaving anything  but footprints and tire tracks behind.  

  • The toll that would take on the opposing soldiers  would be insurmountable. How do you fight an army  

  • you can't see? How do you defend against vehicles  and crafts that are undetectable? You can't.

  • You may be wondering if this technology  will be available to everyone. At this  

  • point only the U.S. and Canadian militaries  have access to the Quantum Stealth Camouflage.  

  • Would knowing the principles of how Quantum  Stealth material works allow someone to create  

  • their own invisibility cloak? At this point it  would seem no one else has unlocked the secrets  

  • of the Quantum Stealth material. The concept of  how it works is basic physics, but engineering  

  • the material has only been accomplished  by Guy Cramer and his company. In fact,  

  • Cramer has stated that he has already developedcountermeasure for Quantum Stealth, so if someone  

  • were to figure out how it is done, he would be  able to detect it. Presumably this information  

  • would be shared with the military if enemy forces  got their hands on Quantum Stealth technology.

  • Having access to Quantum Stealth technology  gives the military an immense advantage on the  

  • battlefield. But what other applications  does the Quantum Stealth material have?  

  • Cramer has already patented  other uses for his technology.  

  • Some of which could change the world  for everyone, not just the military.

  • The same material used to create Quantum  Stealth Camouflage can also be used as a  

  • solar panel amplifier. Tests using current solar  panel technology paired with the Quantum Stealth  

  • material showed that the solar panels  could more than triple their output.  

  • Guy Cramer was able to increase the  output on three different solar panel  

  • designs by threefold each. That is really  impressive. The Quantum Stealth material  

  • could change the game when it comes  to harnessing the power of the sun.

  • Quantum Stealth Camouflage is a realityIt renders objects completely invisible  

  • and undetectable by sensors. As of right now  the military is the only ones that have access  

  • to this technology. It will change the way war  is fought. Using basic principles of physics,  

  • Hyperstealth Biotechnology Inc. has turned  invisibility cloaks into a reality. But the world  

  • as a whole may benefit even more from the other  applications of the Quantum Stealth material.  

  • Maybe someday we will stop burning fossil  fuels that are causing climate change,  

  • and get more energy from the sun  using Quantum Stealth technology.

  • B-21 Raider (What Do We Know About It?).  Or if you want to get a glimpse at how
