Multi-spectrum camouflage net
Our camouflage net applies the latest state of the art technology by providing total concealment solutions. It protects observation through naked eyes, infrared rays, radar scattering and thermal sensor. The system comes together with the supporting accessories such as an adapter and spreader, and a fiber glass pole.
The design and manufacture for the material of our sniper suit is designed to break the human outline in all surrounding background environments for maximum concealment. This technology not only customizes to color pattern and surface texture but it also thermally treated on request.
The fabric itself adapts to environmental temperature change with automatic cooling and heating function as follows:
- No change on outside temperature at 100°C and 20°C
- Outside temperature over 30°C, lower temperature of the suit by 10 around 1°C
- Outside temperature less 5°C, increase temperature inside the suit by 7.5 around 1°C
The suit consists of pants and jacket, with optional mask and helmet. The sniper suit weighs approximately 2.8kg and incorporates high tech permeable material that can discharge sweat, keeping the wearer cool.
