Daily Mail: US Army is developing 'invisibility suit' for soldiers to make them DISAPPEAR on the battlefield - and says it will begin trials in just 18 months

* Hoped suit will work in every terrain, and in every temperature
* chameleon-like system would continuously update the colour and pattern

The US Army is developing an invisibility suits for its soldiers.

It has requested firms developing 'stealth fabrics' to get in touch - and is hoping to test the first prototypes within 18 months.

It is hoped the suit will work in every terrain, from deserts to jungles - and in every temperature.

The US army's call for proposals from companies calls for wearable camouflage with a chameleon-like ability to change according to the background.

'A chameleon-like or adaptive camouflage system would continuously update the colour and pattern, concealing the Soldier in the current environment.'

WNU Editor: The use of camouflage has evolved over the years, but these new innovations (if they are developed as promised) will definitely have a profound impact on the battlefield.
