A system and an apparatus for matching infrared radiation emitted from aircraft skins to background infrared radiation in order to minimize the contrast between the two radiations, and to thereby camouflage the aircraft from electro-optical detection systems. In particular, there are employed heat pipe systems and apparatus for cooling the internal surface of an aircraft skin, and especially the bottom portion of an airframe, for the camouflage of the aircraft from the look-up viewing aspect angles of electro-optical detection systems by transferring hea...
1. An infrared radiation suppression system for concealing the presence of an aircraft having a surface emitting infrared radiation from infrared detection systems, said infrared radiation suppression system comprising means for detecting background infrared radiation in three orthogonal directions or any viewing aspect angle, control means for comparing the emitted radiation to the detected background radition, a heat sink for absorbing heat, a controllable heat pipe having one end connected to said surface and having another end connected to said heat ...
