Mobile Camouflage System

Modern military vehicles must have low signature and adaptable to beat neutralise threats. We developed our Mobile Camouflage System (MCS) to do that.

Key features

Challenging all battlefield sensors
Reduces detection up to 90%
Customisable to protect any vehicle

Protection on the move

We develop and manufacture a comprehensive range of camouflage solutions for increased survivability and force protection. By working with us, you will receive the best partner in signature management.

MCS

As vehicles is the most detectable when manoeuvring, MCS’ multispectral properties and fully optimised sensor protection is essential to ensure concealed mobility.

Key features

The advanced camouflage defeats hostile sensors and target acquisition systems in all phases of the mission. The HeaT Reduction properties of the MCS lowers a vehicle’s internal temperature, extending the endurance of personnel and electronic equipment.

Available for most platforms, the system comprises a combination of materials affecting the electro-magnetic properties, including:

  • Visual and near-infrared properties
  • Thermal properties
  • Radar properties
  • Dust cloud prevention
  • HeaT Reduction

Partnering with Saab 

MCS

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.

All parts of your force, from the single soldier on a mission in a sensor dense environment, to a fully multispectral camouflaged operational base, every asset requires the capability to minimize the probability to be detected. At Saab, we have a long history of creating solutions for any mission scenario – no matter how challenging.

Working with us, you can be certain that you have the best partner in signature management.

Barracuda Academy

With over half a century’s signature management experience, Saab's high competence and expertise are applied to every solution we produce.

Barracuda Academy – become a master of camouflage

“No one goes to Europe without camouflage” Lt Gen Ben Hodges, Commander USAEUR, 2017.

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

There are two courses available.

Camouflage Masterclass

Barracuda academy

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.

Train the Trainer Class

Barracuda Academy

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.

Coolcam

Did you know...

  • By lowering the internal vehicle temperature, the MCS minimizes the energy needed for cooling, reducing total fuel consumption by up to 25 percent in the field
  • Dust cloud suppression, which control the airflow around the vehicle, minimizing service intervals for filters, engine and chassis
  • The colours and patterns can be adapted to blend into any theatre
