Barracuda Camosphere

The Camosphere system is developed to ensure mission success. Covert, precise and surprising fires against any target, anywhere, anytime.

Key features

Adoptable for any mission, environment and weapon system
Makes preparation and target acquisition possible under multispectral cover
Enhances the capability to coordinate fires in time and place

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. Our Camosphere system epitomises flexibility with its ability to fit various objects, occasions and theatres.

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.

Camosphere

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 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.

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.
