    1. As an Air Force/SAC Avionics Systems Master Technician/Master Instructor for many years, I worked on and taught Forward Looking Infrared Systems maintenance on B-52 systems. There are many ways to confuse and defeat modern FLIR systems. One way is by the use of common window glass; IR energy cannot efficiently pass through regular glass, and appears as a “black body” to FLIR. Other sources of IR energy such as road flares, a can of “canned heat” like Sterno, or even incandescent light bulbs can provide false targets. Aluminized “space blankets” provide a great deal of shielding from FLIR’s prying eyes.
