The Kit 300 sheet is made of thermal visual concealment (TVC) material that combines microfibers, metals, and polymers.

The Israeli Ministry of Defense (MoD) and Polaris Solutions, an Israel-based survivability technology company, have unveiled a new camouflage technology that makes soldiers virtually "invisible," The Jerusalem Post reported.

The Kit 300 is made of thermal visual concealment material that combines metals, microfibres, and polymers to reduce the detectability of soldiers.

The material, which can double up as a lightweight stretcher, makes it harder for those wearing it to be seen by both the human eye and thermal imaging equipment, according to the Polaris Solutions website.

Soldiers can either wrap it around themselves or can join sheets together to create a barrier that blends into rocky or desert landscapes, the website said.

"Someone staring at them with binoculars from afar will not see soldiers," Gal Harari, the head of the detectors and imaging technology branch of the MoD's research and development unit, told Janes.com.
