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 are 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:

• Customised to enhance any vehicle
• Reduce detection up to 90 percent
• Gloss and hot-surface prevention
• Dust prevention
• Logistics efficiency
• Silent-watch capability
• Modular load carrying

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:
