At Eurosatory, the international defense and security exhibition taking place in Paris from 11-15 June 2018, Saab is presenting the new Barracuda Adjustable Mobile Camouflage System (MCS), the world-leading camouflage designed for vehicles. One set of Adjustable MCS gives a choice of concealment patterns and so helps troops to remain undiscovered amongst different terrain.
The new Barracuda Adjustable Mobile Camouflage System is designed to operate in more than one environment. The platform integrated system is made out of panels and is known as a “uniform” because it is tailored to the vehicle. Some of the panels are adjustable and include other colors. A woodland system can quickly be more urban by changing light green to grey. A winter uniform can be adjusted to spring or deep foliage by changing some panels to green and brown.
“The new Adjustable MCS is developed to meet the requirements from modern, fast moving maneuver forces that operate in contested domains and are quickly changing terrain. From rural to urban in the same day,” said Görgen Johansson, Head of Saab’s business area Dynamics.
Saab also announced the new multispectral Barracuda Arctic Camouflage Net that makes you blend in to any snowy operational theatre. It is designed to avoid detection from sensors, ranging from those using ultraviolet to wideband radar.
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 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 colors 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. 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.
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.
