Reply to "Helmet Covers"

Most of my information is based on my limited knowledge from a limited science background as well as speaking to those who know more about it than I do, mainly the dye formulators/scientists at the fabric mills. There aren't many people who know about the process or standards and if you do find someone, they are very quiet about it. I'm not sure why this is the case but that has been my experience

The dye formulation is created around the base material to absorb IR and UV instead of reflecting it. This is not a problem I'm trying to solve but rather something that is already standardized across the board with almost all uniforms ranging from flight suits to combat uniforms.

Polyester and some polyester blends do give off a glow under NODS as the fabric itself reflects infrared radiation. Any Gen 3 NODS or even the Photonis Gen 2+ tubes on the market that pick up out of band, should be able to pick up this glow and stick out from the surrounding environment. What I'm trying to figure out is if there is a version of the OMEGA mesh that is not readily available and composed of different materials.
