How can you avoid detection from the high technology of todays modern battlefield? Oath keepers have posted a video of a way to buy or build your anti thermal poncho, but not any way to hide from radar observation drones. Bo Grits said marbles may be used to defeat radar, but how can you do that?

You think that group holds water after all their hype about first shot? The first shot was when LaVoy Finicum was murdered in cold blood and to date they have done what?
I used to be a member until it dawned on me they were just garnering a roundup/watch list for down the road. I can get on a list w/o paying them or their help, thank you very much. Why don't you dig into them an see how many join up, then after a few months reading/being on their forum/s, drop out rather abruptly.

Insulation bro. But its not going to matter to a trained observer, you will be an anomaly, and then whoever is observing you will conduct a further investigation, probably switching to other optics. You wont be "white hot" but you will still be an abnormal shape that will most likely have lines perpendicular to the vegetation/terrain.

This is true and the better way is to stay under the radar. The new technology out there is highly dangerous to the grunts and the only way to avoid being shot may be not to play soldier.

So he answered your question and you say that is true? What is this, paranoia quiz time?

Haha. I've already had my argument for the month over what the military needs to do in the future.

Arnold just rolled in mud to defeat the Predator. I've been operating with that technique for years now with great success.
There's something out there.... And it ain't no man...

As a UAV/Drone operator, I will set your mind at ease, there is no such thing as a Human tracking radar system.....or thermal radar..Flir yes, but you need to be very very important for me to be over head watching you. And if I'm there that means there is at least one to three other people on the ground watching you

To more of less answer your question, you can't outsmart today's technology. There's a reason the military spends almost one trillion dollars a year.

I must respectfully disagree. Our military has been bested by cave-dwelling guerrillas on multiple occasions. The new watchword is 4th Generation Warfare.

Thermals are not nearly as capable as people think they are. In fog, cloud cover, and especially under a canopy of vegetation, they become exponentially worse. My colleagues and I have personally defeated vehicle and aircraft mounted thermal systems in training environments. We were very fearful of them going into the exercises, but found that they were a paper tiger.

The radar question is one I am researching right now. Its detection method is different on a fundamental level, so the things that work for thermals may or may not for radar.

The one I am talking about uses the doppler effect. I saw a video on it, but can't find it now. This was a drone-mounted system which could then overlay that data onto city maps and such.

Hi,

This system uses a doppler and thermal system in combination to detect stationery and moving objects. It can detect a crawling person from something like 3 miles away.

The Doppler shift does not exist in themal signatures. Whatever you're talking about must be a fusion of radar and thermal sensors.

Decoy swarm it while the attacker slips on by

Toss some white phosphorous or a barrage of flares in its direction, overwhelm its IR sensors

Hit the lenses and/or radar emitters with small arms fire

Drone kamikaze with explosives (cheap guided missiles)

I am just a simple civilian, I have seen product video of "person detecting" ground radar from ASELSAN, similar to ?LABAR? chronometer to measure bullet velocity; If it is possıble to detect and measure speed of a bullet in 100 meters ... you reach your own conclusion

Dude, doppler radar isn't rocket science or new. Police have been using it to measure vehicle speeds on the roads since the 70s......

Do they not teach physics and critical thinking in schools any more?

Sergant, you are correct, It is not rocket since; jut about 5 - 10 million lines of computer code runing in real time doing a long range MRI of up to few moving houndred objets keep track of them on the map and providing 3 dimensional representation of each object .

Long range MRI...do tell please??

I would disagree, the "Cave Dwelers" in Vietnam were wiped out during the Tet Offensive. After that the North had to send many 10's of thousands of regular Army troops to get slaughtered in the South before the American Public lost heart. Not having a viable political/government partner in the South did us in. Yes the Guerrillas pulled of some surprises here and there and won a few battles but "militarily" getting wiped out means you lost on the battlefield. I do not see that as besting our troops. To assume your enemy is going to roll over and give way easily only applies to the French in a couple of spectacular examples.

I respectfully disagree.

The French are fine fighters. They fought hard for 6 weeks against the Wehrmacht. The French generals employed an outdated strategy which led to their defeat.

While Tet was a military stalemate, it was really the beginning of the end for the US in Vietnam. As you correctly point out, the American public lost heart. It's not necessary to wipe out a military to win a war. I went to Afg and Iraq multiple times each. Believe me, it's a bitter pill to swallow that we will certainly lose those countries, just as soon as we are no longer propping them up. Their 1975 moment is coming.

Guerrillas win by successfully employing a Fabian strategy. It works. We spend $700+ billion per year on "defense," and we aren't that great. Our ability to beat up on somebody in a set-piece battle just doesn't matter much. Abroad, insurgents know that we will lose heart and leave eventually. Potential allies know this too. At home, our country is currently being over-run by an invading army that has no intention of ever leaving.

To tie this back to the original topic, battlefield tech is rarely decisive at the strategic level, and often is not decisive tactically either. Most complicated technology has a low-tech defeat.

How is it a stalemate when the Viet Song were destroyed as a fighting force and they never held ground, talking militarily and on the battlefield US forces soundly defeated any indigenous S Vietnam insurgency. From Tet on the war was with NVA regular infantry troops. The North could send their son's and daughter's to get killed wholesale with no repercussions and we had no viable partner in S Vietnam. Same Same in SE Asia no viable local governmental/political partner and sufficient source of jihadis willing to get killed.

I just meant stalemate in that we didn't gain any ground, other that ground we were supposed to control anyway. Tactically, you are correct that our guys gave the VC a beating.

This is OT; however, Tet was a tactical victory for the US and a strategic one for N.Vietnam.
Or in other words, a Pyrrhic victory for the US.

But I would argue only because of Walter Cronkite.

The basic tecnology is the same, I think. I have added some links beloow. You could decide yourself, to me it is smartar Labradar on bulked up version imo

Best thing to avoid detection of what you are talking about is to put some earth between you and the observer. Of course, you’d need to somehow know where your observer was. As someone else mentioned, not making yourself a target to begin with is most advised lol. Space blankets can work especially, if you can keep them away from or off of your body, but even then they start to pick up heat over time. If you could dig a ditch and suspend a space blanket over you then you can get some cooling of a signature, for a time. I think the OPs original question is really more about how to get away from one rather than simply hiding from one. If you got aerial trackers coupled with dogs and peeps on the ground, you are pretty screwed. Lmao. Not impossible by no means but your job got a lot harder. Running from one and avoiding detection for a couple minutes is two entirely different things.

Me and a few buddies hunt all the time with thermals. What we have found is that insulating your skin and immediate clothing with an outer garment (Such as one of those cheap, very thick ghillie suits) works excellent in blocking your heat signature. Thermal imaging cant see through things. So the long thick fibers block the line of sight of the lens. And the fibers also act as a giant (Heat Sink) and dissipate heat.

Of course, sitting in an open field doesnt work. You have to combine what I typed with hiding in thick brush, leaves, or go underwater lolol. Thermal cant look into water either.
