Compliant, clandestine cover

Combat is rough, dangerous, sweaty and totally unpredictable. Observing, deciding and acting on your conditions from the best position ensures mission success.

Camosphere
Our Camosphere system epitomises flexibility with its ability to fit various objects, occasions and theatres.
Camosphere
It works for forward observation and reconnaissance units that face extreme conditions, where detection, isolation and bad weather create high demands on equipment, as well as ground-based air defence units that must remain concealed before engaging their targets at the right moment.

The camosphere can be used with any weapon system or sensor in the most challenging and hostile environments. Gathering target data, prepare for action and engagement under protection from all relevant battlefield sensors gives you the winning edge when and where it is needed.

Smart fighting

The Camosphere challenge UV, visual, near-infrared, thermal infrared and broadband radar-sensors.

The 3D-material consists of a textile matrix in order to fully use the properties of the active materials. The design creates a non-snagging and easy to use system supporting fast and safe operation.
