Finnish MoD selects Fibrotex camouflage systems

20th January 2014 - 12:25 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Fibrotex Technologies will manufacture and supply its multispectral camouflage systems to the Finnish defence forces under a contract announced on 20 January. The company was awarded the contract, worth up to €35,000,000, following an open competition.

Fibrotex multispectral camouflage systems have been developed to protect against various sensors in a variety of ranges, including UV, visual, near-infrared, thermal, and radar.

The systems that will be supplied to the Finnish Ministry of Defence under this contract are reversible, with each side designed to provide camouflage coverage in different environments, such as snow, woodland, or urban areas.  In particular, the systems were developed to meet the camouflage properties and extreme environmental conditions of the Scandinavian area.

Adi Blum, CEO, Fibrotex, said: ‘We feel great pride to have been awarded this strategic project, with its leading-edge technical requirements. The Finnish Army Material Command has been a valued customer of ours since 2006, and we are delighted with this award and committed to ensuring that this partnership will continue for years to come.’

The company said that deliveries under the contract are scheduled to begin shortly.
