Turkish invisible fabric awaits ministry nod for export
A Turkish invisible fabric that radars and thermal cameras cannot detect will soon be available for sale to member countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO). Developed by the Sun Textile and Research Development Centre, the fabric passed tests by the Turkish Armed Forces, and is now awaiting approval from the defence ministry for export.

Invented by two scientists at Teknokent of Hacettepe University in Ankara, Sabri Ünlütürk, the fabric is being produced in a factory in the western Izmir province, chairman of the executive board of Sun Holding, told a Turkish news agency.

The fabric spreads body heat in a way that makes the person wearing it impossible to be spotted by thermal cameras. Tests for the uniforms are currently under way. (DS)
