Saab announced today that it has received an order for the production and delivery of camouflage equipment from the US Army. Deliveries will occur over the next six months.
The company has not specified the details of the order in the announcement.
“We are proud to be able to continue to deliver state-of-the-art solutions to the US Army. It is also an important step forward towards sustaining a critical US signature management industrial base,” said Brian Keller, President of Saab Barracuda LLC.
Saab had won a contract earlier worth an approximate $1.8 billion in 2006 to provide Ultra-Lightweight Camouflage Net System to the US Army. The contract ends in 2016.
Saab offers a package of camouflage systems and force protection solutions with the purpose to decrease the enemy’s ability to detect and engage. These solutions protect camps, vehicles and personnel against hostile sensors and enemy target acquisition.
