Arctic Warrior Experiment 2023

Solutions made for harsh climate

Arctic Warrior Experiment is an arena where the Norwegian Armed Forces and the Norwegian Defense Research Establishment invites the industry to come up with innovative solutions to strengthen the soldiers ability to operate in an arctic environment.
Sirius Compact - New Flexibility for EW Users

Sirius Compact brings new capabilities thanks to its low size, weight and power, particularly in comparison to equivalent larger static solutions. Because it can easily be integrated to drones, vehicles, vessels, masts or man-portable applications, users can rapidly deploy the system and scale its coverage as the situation demands.


Sirius Compact is modular, scalable and can be used stand-alone, in a network of sensors or as a complement to existing sensors. By enhancing situational awareness through silent detection, classification and prioritisation of radar and datalink emissions, it is also a force-multiplier enabling users to locate threats whilst remaining undetected. Autonomous operation enables assimilation and compilation of situational awareness information without the need to store sensitive data in the sensor.

Arctic Camouflage Net

Arctic Camouflage Net

Armed forces today have to be prepared for operations in a wide range of environments, with constantly changing threats and intensity. Saab’s Arctic Camouflage Net has outstanding multispectral properties that protect across the entire electromagnetic spectrum where there is a threat sensor.

The visual and near-infrared colour pigments and accompanying patterns are specifically developed for arctic environments. The pattern is randomised on both sides, making the net blend in even better. Low gloss also prevents giveaway glints and reflections, and the thermal properties provide greater protection.

The Arctic Camouflage Net is two-sided and made from rough and safe materials. The reversible design allows the net to have two different colour schemes coatings and patterns for two entirely different environments. The winter camouflage’s dimension, shape and colours can be tailored to all arctic environments and to the customer’s requirements.


Adaptable Personal Protection

Flexible camouflage is essential for individual safety in all situations. The Personal Camouflage Poncho combines the flexibility of a camouflage net with the figure-adapted design and comfort of a combat uniform, providing versatile, multispectral protection. The Poncho is designed to cover your load carriage system, shielding both soldier and equipment from view. The Personal Camouflage Poncho is ultra-light, weighing no more than 1.5 kg. The water repellent fabric ensures that it remains ultralight in all conditions.

Barracuda ULCAS

Saab offers most advanced camouflage systems such as ULCAS (Ultra-Lightweight Camouflage Screen) with unrivalled signature protection for objects in static positions. The camouflage system ULCAS is very light – 250 grams per square meter – meaning soldiers can easily carry 50–75 square meters when needed. With a 3D surface structure, the net is flexible and easy to install.


Saab’s Barracuda camouflage system has been developed in close cooperation with the armed forces in Sweden, Germany, NATO and other key organizations. Saab Barracuda provides innovative solutions to over 45 countries. It has also held established relationships for over more than half a century.
