Canada orders Saab camouflage systems
Saab has received a contract to produce multispectral static camouflage systems for the Canadian Army, the company announced on 3 April.
The order completes a contract awarded to the company in 2013.
The company will deliver a customer specific woodland version of the ultra-lightweight camouflage screen (ULCAS). The ULCAS is an advanced multispectral camouflage net that provides advanced protection for vehicles and other objects in static positions.
Simon Carroll, head of Saab Canada, said: ‘This order will provide the Canadian Army with the most advanced camouflage system in the world, which brings true multispectral protection against detection by hostile threats to the end user.’
Deliveries will take place during 2019.
