CNN Story on our Quantum Stealth goes viral
After a chance meeting with a British military scientist in 2011, I was invited to demonstrate at British Military Headquarter in Bristol, England as well as the SBS (Special Boat Service) at the Royal Marine Base Poole, England. I demonstrated the Smartcamo material, I only showed them photos of the Quantum Stealth being overly protective of the technology at this initial stage. I was accompanied by two recently retired U.S. Navy SEAL’s who were demonstrating different products for the British SBS (Special Boat Service – like the U.S. Navy SEAL’s) and we were able to combine my technology demo in Bristol to allow them to also demonstrate at the same gathering. The SEAL’s allowed me to demonstrate at their SBS meeting in Poole. Both Navy SEAL’s became advisers for Hyperstealth after this trip.
The SEAL who had served in the Navy for 19 years, asked me when we were driving off the base what effect the material had on shadows, as the SEALs couldn’t hide their shadows on the ocean floor when swimming up to a beach, this would give away their location to any observer above them regardless of their camouflage. I turned to him and said, “I have no idea, I never thought to look at that!”. I went back to Canada and within an hour of experimenting I phoned him up and claimed, “I observed an 80-90% reduction of shadow”. He responded that this shadow reduction alone should be of great interest to the U.S. Navy.
Word spread, and in 2012 I was requested to meet with the leading scientist at the Special Programs Office at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, the same location I had met the British military scientist the year prior.
In early 2012 I was asked to travel to Ottawa to demonstrate to the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) National Division Protective Operations ERT (Emergency Response Team), this group is like the U.S. Secret Service. CANSOFCOM (Special Operations Forces Command) also located in the Ottawa region asked for a separate demonstration while I was in town.

A common element occurred in the U.S. demonstrations, surprise that I had accomplished this and the inability to work with me as I was a Canadian, the Canadian Military would need to authorize any future collaboration with the U.S to progress further. The NRL set up a meeting for me in Ottawa with their Canadian Counterparts at our DRDC (Defence Research and Development Canada). That meeting occurred in early 2013 and by this time I had two Canadian advisors to Hyperstealth join me at the meeting, a retired Canadian Brigadier General and a retired special forces soldier with 10 years of service from our Canadian Forces CANSOFCOM.
The DRDC determined at the meeting that my Quantum Stealth technology would not be classified. The NRL didn’t understand why the DRDC didn’t view it as they did but the NRL also stated that they would accept the Canadian decision. I was free to work with the U.S. military, other allied foreign militaries, commercial entities and/or secure the patent rights.
I understood that taking out a patent would publicly release the technology to anyone who wanted to look it up and would start us down the path of no return, so I continued to pursue allied military forces.
Internal discussions spread from my presentations and I was invited to demonstrate to numerous high level military groups in Canada and the U.S.; Canadian Special Forces JTF2 (Joint Task Force 2) counter-terrorism unit from Dwyer Hill, CSIS (Canadian Security and Intelligence Service), Canadian Forces Soldier System Programme Management, U.S. Navy Special Warfare (Navy SEAL teams) with five different demonstrations for DEVGRU (Development Group = SEAL team 6), USMC Sniper Instructors and FBI Hostage Rescue Team at their base in Quantico, VA, Marine Corps Warfighting Lab (MCWL), U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research Development and Engineering Center, 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta, commonly referred to as Delta Force or CAG (Combat Applications Group). U.S. Secret Service...
U.S. Army PEO Soldier, Fort Belvoir, Va
After 20 minutes of seeing my presentation and then handling the material he turned to the two engineers in the room and said, “we need to rewrite everything we thought we knew about this because he just proved us wrong!”. He also claimed that there was no military requirement to make things invisible because they didn’t think it could be done. As such there was no requirement which also meant there were no funds available. He suggested I patent it and they could then buy it as COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) which means that I would not be required to meet difficult military specifications. I told him my concerns for going that route as it would allow potential adversaries to duplicate.
In 2015 PEO soldier came out with a RFI (Request For Information) for our material, or anything similar by others. Our Canadian company was unable to compete due to my Canadian citizenship and Hyperstealth being a Canadian company was also unable to compete. To my knowledge no other company submitted a competing material to PEO soldier under this RFI and it was later canceled. We had a U.S. company in Colorado, it did not qualify as the owners were Canadian.
In 2016, the New Zealand Army invited me to demonstrate for their SOCOM near Auckland and while interested, they knew that they alone could not afford an exclusive on the technology and it might require a dedicated combination of Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and/or Britain and the U.S. to get it off the ground.
In May 2016 I was able to demonstrate to U.S. SOCOM Deputy PEO SOF Warrior, he was amazed and called his key people to see the material and then asked his people to follow up, there was no follow up. In 2017 I ran into him again and he asked what happened with my material, I told him no one followed up, he then tasked one of his subordinates to follow up which again didn’t happen.
In 2017, the Australian Army Diggerworks then invited me to Melbourne to demonstrate. Diggerworks was developed to identify, develop and integrate Soldier Combat System (SCS) solutions to enhance the capability of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) Land Combat. It’s a program to fast track potential technologies.
In September 2017 I met by chance the Deputy Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy, a Rear Admiral, who I was able to show a video demonstration of the material, he was impressed and asked why Canada didn’t take it on? To sum up my response “I don’t know!”. This triggered another requested demonstration in Ottawa with the Director General Naval Force Development, Royal Canadian Navy and the Director of Naval Requirements, Royal Canadian Navy in December 2017.
USMC SOCOM Commanding General
This led a final extended effort to provide the U.S. military with one last chance to acquire the technology before I couldn’t hold back the patent process any longer.
MARSOC requested summaries of the technologies, which I put together, encrypted and provided to them. MARSOC reached out to other SOCOM people to see if there was other interest and USASOC (U.S. Army SOCOM) had several interested individuals within their Science and Technology section.
In September 2018 USASOC sent a soldier up to my office in Vancouver to see an extended demonstration over a few days and while he seemed genuinely excited by the potential applications, upon his return he was unable to get further interest from his chain of command.
My offer to MARSOC and USASOC; acquire it, cancel the provisional patents to retain secrecy and utilize it or bury it.
These were some of the many military demonstrations I conducted between 2011-2018 and my deadline for military acquisition due to the patent process was late November 2018.
If you can’t join them, beat them to it!
If their goal was to use the technology without me, they were only shown Version 1 of the material and Version 2 made Version 1 obsolete (this was my failsafe if anyone leaked what I showed them as I did not have the patent protection in place during most of the demonstrations), I now have 13 different versions.
I filed the four separate non-provisional patents over the past year, the provisional patents proceeded these and protected the technology for 12 months and allow us to claim priority on those technologies from those filing dates. It also allowed me to make improvements before solidifying the IP (Intellectual Property) with the non-provisional patent application. Improvements can only be claimed from the new application date.
I was able to demonstrate in the patent that I could get 210.74% more power with Amorphous (thin film) solar panels which amounts to 3.1 times more power (100% is double, so 200% is triple the output). With Monocrystalline solar panels I achieved 180% more power or 2.8 times the output, nearly triple. Monocrystalline is the most common solar panel for residential and commercial applications.
It should be noted that these levels are unlikely to be achieved with many of the current residential or commercial configurations due to the panels proximity to each other however I developed a practical system and included this in the patent application which showed a 16%+ increase in power output per panel that may be modified to function on pre-existing installations.
The patent is extremely large at 110 pages, 61 which are text and 49 which are drawings which details the numerous experiments and progression of discoveries which culminated with this filing. Our Patent Attorney has his Masters of Science in Physics, which is critical to being able to present this invention properly.
I see huge benefits for the solar market with our solar amplifier, not only from increased power output but also in reducing the costs associated with converting to solar energy by allowing the home or business owner to reach the breakeven point faster where the money saved finally covers the cost of the installation and solar panels.
Hyperstealth has also filed the three remaining patents which are now non-provisional patents. Improvements in each of the three provisional patents has also been achieved and these can all be viewed on the main page of this site http://www.invisibility.ca or on the main company page www.hyperstealth.com
My recent laser experiments indicate that quantum physics are involved in some capacity; according to my patent attorney “that is the only explanation!”. I had assumed that quantum mechanics was behind many of the “impossible” results, hence the “Quantum Stealth” name.
The quantum physics involved could also account for the apprehension of the military as the effects do not make complete sense, it doesn’t fall into what is expected to happen in normal physics. In quantum physics you should expect the unexpected. My patent attorney explained that quantum mechanics happen all around us, we just have difficultly perceiving it.
In 2017 more than $63.1 billion in retail spending can be attributed to fishing and hunting in the U.S. alone according to the Outdoor Industry Organization.
The goal of the U.S. Military over a three-year period beginning in 2019 is to buy 108,000 Enhanced Night Vision Googles (ENVG) to equip every close combat infantryman, scout, combat engineer and special operator. These ENVG’s combine the latest Infrared and thermal technologies. Quantum Stealth can completely hide targets in these spectrums.
Why didn’t we partner with a U.S. company to work with the U.S. Army in 2015 when the RFI was released? This would require us giving up a substantial portion of the control and potential royalties. Again, without the patents in place, we ran the risk of exposure to others who could capitalize on this.
While I still have concerns over the potential for misuse with Quantum Stealth, there are practical applications with the military and law enforcement as well as numerous commercial applications as mentioned prior.
One of our provisional patents has the potential to increase the resolution of LIDAR (Lasers operating like a Radar) used by self driving cars to scan their surroundings to determine a 3-dimensional image of the environment and allow artificial intelligence to determine safely how and when to steer, accelerate and brake. The resolution increase our technology provides could be more than a million times what it currently is. See the videos at hyperstealth.com under the Hyperstealth patent pending Laser Scattering, Deviation and Manipulation heading.
Hyperstealth does not plan on manufacturing these technologies but licensing them to be manufactured by others. Do not contact us to ask for samples or product, we no longer respond to those requests.

Smartcamo had not solved the problem of masking movement. While static camouflage may be very effective in a given environment it is designed to operate in, the moment the target moves usually provides enough of an anomaly to the viewer to give away the most critical aspect of camouflage “where is it” and attract a detailed examination through the focal process to determine “what is it” part of the visual analysis.
Shortly after developing Smartcamo, I had made the accidental discovery of complete invisibility and called it “Quantum Stealth”. This material addressed most of the shortcomings of Smartcamo. Quantum Stealth was passive, it didn’t require a power source and worked all the time, the material did all the work. It was lightweight and could be made as thin a paper. It completely hid the target by showing what was behind the target, so I had a material which could camouflage a target in any environment in any season at anytime of the day or night.

Hyperstealth invisibly cloak slips through the military unnoticed!
In 2010 I was conducting experiments and accidentally discovered a material that could render a six-inch object completely invisible. It didn’t take me long before I was able to scale up the experiment to determine that the material could hide a person, a vehicle or a large building. As a successful developer of camouflage patterns for structures and buildings on U.S. federal government land, the highly successful Optifade® hunting line and over 6,000,000 military issued uniforms since 2003, this was a breakthrough I had never anticipated.
Camouflage is used to hide prey from predators’ vision and conversely to hide the predators from the prey. There are biological limitations of natural camouflage such as spots or stripes that can only be overcome by a few species such as the octopus or cuttlefish which belong in the same class known as cephalopods. These masters of camouflage can change their colors and patterns to some extent to match that of their background. This mechanism can also utilized attract attention to create a high contrast display to communicate aggression, draw in an unsuspecting prey or impress potential mates.
Human development of camouflage patterns where we can combine spots with stripes has only recently occurred and it was only in early 2010 that I was able to develop an active camouflage called Smartcamo, which could change color from a dark woodland to a bright desert coloration and the colors in-between coming close to the ability of the cephalopods.
