Can You Be Truly Undetectable to Animals?


Whitetail deer have incredible senses, including a sense of smell that far exceeds human abilities. Sometimes we have everything under control — the wind is right, we sit motionless, and we’re well camouflaged — yet we still get busted. How is that possible?

All living creatures produce electric signals that other animals can detect and to which they react. Taking that premise as a starting-off point, the makers of HECS StealthScreen have developed a product that they claim can counter this electronic signaling process. StealthScreen has been so successful, it’s now sold around the world and used in underwater diving to avoid detection. Read on for more information about the science behind the product:

All living things, including humans, emit faint electric signals and many animals are able to detect and react to these signals. HECS StealthScreen reduces the human electric signal, allowing the wearer increased proximity to animals.

Warren Bird, managing director of Galvani Limited adds, “HECS is a revolutionary development in concealment textiles. There is increasing excitement for this technology from hunting and dive professionals here in New Zealand and Australia. Hecsgear will make it easier for them to get their buddies and partners into HECS gear too.”

The innovative HECS StealthScreen material is made of uniquely woven conductive carbon fibers that are designed to reduce the human body’s electric signal, while delivering the highest standards of comfort and performance.
