Blend into arctic environments
Our Arctic Camouflage Net has outstanding multispectral properties that protect across the entire electromagnetic spectrum where there is a threat sensor. The winter camouflage’s dimension, shape and colours can be tailored to all arctic environments and to your requirements.
Two-sided and made from rough and safe materials, the net can quickly be adapted to changes in the environment. The reversible design allows the net to have two different colour schemes coatings and patterns for two entirely different environments.
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.

Signature Management is at the core of our products. Our technology minimises the contrast between an object and the background, making sensory detection much harder. Signature Management reduces exposure and distance identification, which forces enemies to move closer in order to engage.
Saab's camouflage solutions offers true multispectral capabilities against a wide range of sensor. These are the properties for the product:
Ultraviolet light has shorter wavelengths than visible light and cannot be seen by the human eye. Our camouflage and deception products feature a high UV reflectance, enabling them to better blend into arctic environments.
The human eye is naturally skilled at perceiving the surrounding environment. The non-glossy structure, pattern and colours of our products enable vehicles and objects to blend in with their surroundings and avoid visual detection.
Natural environments reflect differently depending on a variety of factors, including climate and its interactions with solar radiation. Night vision devices are needed to be able to detect reflections at night. Our products feature patterns that are adjusted perfectly to match NIR reflections of the environment.
Short-wave infrared sensors are extremely light sensitive and provide high-resolution images in very low light conditions. These sensors can easily spot laser beams from laser designators. Our camouflage manages SWIR wavelengths by following the spectral reflections of the environment.
All objects, from military vehicles to your body, radiate thermal energy. This radiation can be detected by thermal cameras operating in the mid-wave infrared or long wave-infrared spectrum. Our products are able to adapt to the background radiation of a natural environment due to materials and designs that interact with the surroundings through convection, reflection, radiation and insulation.
Radar (radio detection and ranging) systems use radio waves to determine the range, direction, and velocity of objects. This is achieved by emitting radiation and retrieving information from the reflected radiation. Our products provide protection against synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems that generate high-resolution images as well as fire control radars and target seeking missiles.
"No one goes to Europe without camouflage"
Barracuda Academy – become a master of camouflage
Modern signature management is one of the very few disruptive technologies that can break an enemy’s awareness. Barracuda Academy gives students a theoretical and practical understanding of it.
Through our world-class expert-led courses, you can increase your knowledge of modern signature management to:
- Gain the tactical edge through concealment
- Identify battlefield threats
- Enhance survivability of your forces
This course gives users the tools and knowledge needed to excel in the art of signature management. Effective camouflage will improve your force’s survivability and make sure you always have the tactical advantage in the field.
The programme covers both indoor learning and practical outdoor demonstrations, including a close look at threat sensors, decoys, various field trials and information about the production, quality control and design processes.
This special course is for instructors who need to be ahead of their students, and can be customised according to user requirements and held in their country.
It gives instructors the tools to train prospective signature management operators. The course also ensures that procedure, protocol and our decades of experience can be applied to maximise the survivability of field operators.
This course can be customised according to user requirements, and can be held in their own nation.
Partnering with Saab
We are the only complete system house within signature management. We design and manufacture a comprehensive range of Camouflage, Concealment and Deception solutions for soldiers, platforms and units.
