Fibrotex Inc Edged out Saab Barracuda to win US Army’s Ultra-Light Camouflage Netting System (ULCANS), under a 10-year contract worth $480 million.

The contract award follows a two-year period competitive testing, trials and data collection conducted by the US Army’s Natick Soldier Systems Center (PM-FSS), which assessed camouflage technologies from major global manufacturers against the Army’s most advanced battlefield surveillance sensors.

Mr. Malleron, CEO of Fibrotex USA: "Today more than ever military forces and opposition groups are using night vision sensors and thermal devices against our troops, but by using Fibrotex’ camouflage, concealment and deception solutions we make them undetectable again.”

Fibrotex’ 2D ULCANS technology provides more persistent IR, thermal & counter-radar performance and offers a greater range of capabilities than known before. Fibrotex USA will deliver the material in reversible designs – allowing for the first time a different pattern and capability on each ¬¬side, enabling soldiers, vehicles and systems to disappear into light/dark woodland, snow/alpine and desert/urban environments, blending into the terrain in all weather conditions, anywhere on the globe.
