I have seen camo that hides the heat signature of the wearer so that night vision, or FLIR, etc can't see them by the heat source. It worked real well when I saw it using a night vision scope. I don't like the idiea of exporting it, but when I saw it, civilians had it here in the US. I guess they could of had military ties, but I didn't have a chance to talk to them. Besides, I think China has stolen so much technology that it was bound to happen anyway.

If you actually read the links to the papers, the technology dates back to 1995, so basically 15 year old technology. Also, if the actually read the papers, it relates to NIR illumination, not thermal. The goal was to match the natural background in the NIR spectrum. Still, the Aussies were a bit pissed at the technology transfer.
The 2nd video was interesting, though I've done hands-on thermal imaging, which is much more fun. I didn't really see the relevance to the first video. BTW, they didn't play as embedded..
