Saab Launches a New Barracuda Arctic Camouflage Net
On Tuesday at Eurosatory 2018, Saab announced its new multispectral Barracuda Arctic Camouflage Net that makes operators blend in to any snowy operational theatre. It is designed to avoid detection from sensors, ranging from those using ultraviolet to wideband radar in all bands.
The Arctic environment is extreme and very special compared to other environments due to the climatic conditions whilst snow can have a wide variety of characteristics. Barracuda Arctic Camouflage Net is a two-sided, i.e. reversible, camouflage net that enables quick and flexible operation to meet changes in the surrounding environment. One side is purely white and the other side is both white and shades of green/grey. This makes it possible to operate in amongst different colours of snow, at both high and low altitude environments.
Barracuda’s advanced camouflage technology products have already been exported to more than 60 countries worldwide, having a firm hold of a large percent of the market.
Saab is able toboffer a 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.
Barracuda camouflage solutions offer multispectral protection. Everything from ultra-violet, visual, near infrared, short wave infrared to thermal sensors and radar. Built-in thermal radiation protection reduces the operating temperature inside vehicles and increases crew comfort, firing accuracy, and fuel efficiency.
