Royal Danish Army Orders Saab Barracuda Camouflage

These products work like a Cloak of invisibility from the threats on today’s Battlefield.

The new orders contain static camouflage systems, which is an advanced multi-spectral camouflage net that provides signature protection for vehicles and other objects in static positions.

With these products The Royal Danish Army will have the most advanced multi-spectral camouflage systems on the market, providing them with exceptional levels of multi-spectral protection against multiple sensor threats”, says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics.

Technology & Background

Saab Barracuda camouflage solutions offer multi-spectral protection. Everything from ultra-violet, visual, near infrared, short wave infrared to thermal sensors and radar.

Saab Barracuda’s advanced camouflage technology products have been exported to more than 60 countries worldwide. Saab offers a unique package of tailor-made camouflage systems and force protection solutions that decrease the enemy’s ability to detect and engage. These solutions protect personnel, vehicles and base infrastructure against hostile sensors and enemy target acquisition.

To counter Infiltration operations, there is untapped potential for the use of Saab Barracuda Multi-spectral Camouflage nets (MSCN) and more importantly for Multi-spectral Personal Camouflage Equipment (MSPCE) such as Special Operations Tactical Suiting (SOTACS) primarily for use of advance scouts who operate in remote outposts for long hours.

For border areas, Ponchos and Sniper Suits deceive infiltrators using Night Vision Goggles, IR Binoculars, etc. Barracuda personal over-wear (is worn over load carriages) has unique properties to reduce thermal signatures and it also blends with surroundings.

The orders were booked in 2018 and deliveries are expected to take place in 2019.

The US Army has ordered similar camouflage solutions from SAAB recently.
