Saab offers a complete range of Personal Camouflage Systems. The aim is to offer all soldiers, including special operations forces, lightweight and easy to pack Signature Management tools that offer protection and facilitate stealth operations in hostile territories. The Personal Camouflage Net (Soldier Net) is light and easy to carry. It has multispectral characteristics and protects in the visual, near-infrared and thermal wavebands.
- Visual. Both pattern and colours used in The Soldier Net are designed to imitate the colour scheme of each intended environment. Pattern and colours can be Customised according to customer requirements. The Soldier Net is also available in a winter version, where special attention is given to the UV properties of the net.
- Near-Infrared. Pigments used in the Soldier Net pattern are developed to emulate the near infrared reflection of vegetation, rocks and soil in the intended environment. The near-infrared properties of the Soldier Net provide protection against night vision devices and other related threats.
- Thermal Infrared. The thermal infrared properties are adapted to obstruct thermal reconnaissance and reduce the risk of detection in all climate conditions. The Soldier Net blocks 70% of the thermal energy transmitted by the soldier.
The Soldier Net is composed of two layers: a non-snagging base fabric and an incised garnish material, which provides the three dimensional surface structure. The net is ultra-light, weighing approximately 200g/m². The ‘non-snagging’ construction ensures easy handling and allows a long service life for the system. The Soldier Net is water repellent and maintains its ultra lightweight even when used in humid or wet weather conditions.
