Saab secures contract to deliver camouflage systems to France

The company will provide advanced camouflage systems for the operational areas of the French Army.

Swedish aerospace and defence company Saab has secured a contract to deliver its Barracuda multispectral camouflage systems to France.

The contract was awarded by the French defence procurement agency Direction générale de l’armement (DGA).

As agreed, Saab will provide advanced camouflage systems for the operational areas of the French Army, as well as work on a system adaptation phase in collaboration with the DGA.

During the joint work phase, the Barracuda camouflage solutions will be specifically adapted to meet the operational requirements of the French Army.

Saab Barracuda business unit head Henning Robach said: “The first phase of this programme will fine-tune the specification of the multispectral camouflage nets in order to meet the specific requirements of the French Army.

“The provided technology will enhance the user’s ability to remain undetected in the battlefield, where the development of more capable and accessible sensors drastically increases the need for efficient camouflage.”

Deliveries will be made annually over a period of eight years.

Under this contract, the French company Solarmtex will work as the local industrial and distribution partner for Saab’s Barracuda camouflage products.

Saab has more than 60 years of experience in the field of advanced camouflage systems. It has delivered Barracuda camouflage systems to more than 45 countries.

The Barracuda camouflage systems, and other protection solutions, are developed to reduce the risk of detection on the battlefield.

Several types of camouflage solutions, in different configurations, are available to protect camps, individuals, vehicles, weapon stations, sensors equipment, and other assets in any environment or terrain.

Saab recently secured a contract to deliver the Carl-Gustaf M4 recoilless weapon and ammunition to Lithuania.
