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:
