Barracuda Camouflage Marine Solution

Whether on land or at sea, the threat of detection from advanced enemy sensors is ever-present. Barracuda’s Camouflage Marine Solution unites the superior capabilities of our proven MCS and ULCAS into one powerful offering for small surface vessels.

Multispectral protection for marine operations

The life of a soldier is fraught with danger, risk and uncertainty, but one thing soldiers should always be certain of is the effectiveness of their camouflage systems. Barracuda’s Camouflage Marine Solution has been uniquely designed to offer complete confidence to soldiers operating from the water, whether cutting through waves at breakneck speeds or moored to the coastline. Comprised of interlocking, fully customisable panels and an advanced multispectral camouflage net, this innovative solution delivers unrelenting protection from state-of-the-art enemy sensors in times when uncertainty could mean defeat.

Operational advantages

  • Multispectral protection
  • Reduces detection by up to 90 percent
  • Telescopic support poles
  • Ultra-lightweight design
  • Rapid deployment

Signature Management

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.

True multispectral

Saab's camouflage solutions offers true multispectral capabilities against a wide range of sensor. These are the properties for the product:

With Camouflage panels installed
Combat boat with Barracuda Camouflage Marine Solution and ULCAS
With camouflage net fully deployed

Customise without compromise

Thanks to its modular and highly customisable design, Barracuda’s Camouflage Marine Solution’s interlocking panels can completely encase the visible surfaces of any small surface vessel, without compromising functionality or requiring modification to the vehicle. This ensures soldiers have all the freedom, manoeuvrability and control they’ve come to expect, with added peace of mind thanks to the outstanding multispectral properties on offer.

Conceal your advantage 

Today’s military operations demand camouflage that can seamlessly blend into any arena. The solution’s quick-to-deploy and colour-adaptable multispectral net can emulate the near-infrared reflection of its surroundings. Secured to the boat via a metal frame, and with the option to be fixed to the ground via a combination of ropes and aluminium or steel stakes, the net can mimic any environment, from barren rock-covered coastlines to areas covered in lush green vegetation. Telescopic support poles can also be utilised to alter the net’s silhouette, enhancing the overall effect and resulting in a greater level of deception.
