Saab signs new Barracuda camouflage contract

4th April 2017 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Norway and Denmark have signed a four-year framework contract with Saab that will allow them to order camouflage systems for their armed forces, the company announced on 3 April.

The contract covers Barracuda static and mobile camouflage systems in woodland, desert and winter configurations, along with support provision.

Saab's Barracuda advanced camouflage technology is designed to decrease the enemy's ability to detect and engage, protecting personnel, vehicles and base infrastructure against hostile sensors and enemy target acquisition.

Anders Wiman, head of business unit Barracuda within Saab business area Dynamics, said: 'Both Denmark and Norway have decided to strengthen their armed forces and this is one part of that.

'They will now have the possibility to order systems that will keep them undetected in all conditions and in many different environments.'
