Description:

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a military electronic apparatus that may not be detected by a thermal detection signal and more particularly to use a shell or a coating to achieve the goal of stealth.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Electronic apparatuses may process more and more data because the processing speed is increased. However, heat energy generated from the electronic apparatus is also increased. When in a usual environment, if the heat dissipation can be overcome, the electronic apparatuses may operate normally. However, when the electronic apparatuses are used in a military environment, the situation may be different. Referring to FIG. 1, a schematic diagram illustrates an electronic apparatus for use in the military environment. A heat energy generated by the electronic apparatus 13 may be sensed by a thermal detection signal 12 generated from a thermal detection apparatus 11. The position of the electronic apparatus 13 may be further detected to endanger the safety of users. Therefore, insulating a heat source within the electronic apparatus to prevent the electronic apparatus from being detected by the thermal detection apparatus, and further absorbing the thermal detection signal generated from the thermal detection apparatus are very important issues for military electronic apparatuses.

To insulate the heat source within the electronic apparatus, the inventor of the present invention based on years of experience on related research and development invents a military electronic apparatus to overcome the foregoing shortcomings.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Accordingly, an object of the present invention is to provide a military electronic apparatus that will not be detected by a thermal detection signal. Furthermore, a shell and a coating are used to insulate a heat source within an electronic apparatus. A signal generated from a thermal detection apparatus is also absorbed. The military electronic apparatus may not be traced by the thermal detection apparatus so as to achieve the goal of stealth.

To achieve the forgoing object, the military electronic apparatus is used to prevent detection of the thermal detection signal The military electronic apparatus includes an electronic apparatus, a heat insulation element and an anti-detection element. Heat energy is generated by the electronic apparatus while operating. The heat insulation element is disposed upon a surface of the electronic apparatus for insulating the heat energy generated from the electronic apparatus. The anti-detection element is disposed upon a surface of the heat insulation element for absorbing the thermal detection signal. The electronic apparatus is preferably a computer.

The military electronic apparatus of the invention has advantages as follows:

(1). The computer in the military environment could still operate normally and continuously without influence from the inside heat.

(2). The position of a user may not be divulged through the computer in the military environment due to the inside heat.

(3). The usability of the computer in the military environment could be increased without influence from the inside heat.

(4). The operation efficiency of the computer in the military environment could be increased without influence from the inside heat.

Other features and advantages of the present invention and variations thereof will become apparent from the following description, drawings, and claims.
