Winter Camouflage Nets
Disappear in winter conditions
Unrivalled protection against reconnaissance sensors and target acquisition systems
The winter climate puts great demands on signature management equipment. Low ambient temperatures result in high contrasts between warm and cold objects, making it difficult to reduce thermal signatures. Saab’s ultra-lightweight Winter Camouflage Nets are specially adapted for protection against ultraviolet, visual, near-infrared, thermal infrared and radar reconnaissance in winter conditions.

Saab’s camouflage nets provide unrivalled protection against reconnaissance sensors and target acquisition systems. Our camouflage nets can be adjusted to specific signature requirements including visual (VIS), near-infrared (NIR), thermal infrared (TIR) and broadband radar properties and patterns.
Winter climates put great demands on signature management equipment. Low ambient temperatures result in high contrasts between warm and cold objects, making it difficult to reduce thermal signatures. Furthermore, winter camouflage has to be adapted to suit the high UV reflection of a snow covered winter landscape.
Saab’s ultra lightweight winter camouflage nets are specially adapted for protection against ultraviolet, visual, near-infrared, thermal infrared and radar reconnaissance in winter conditions. The net is supplied with a pattern on one side, which creates a contrast between high and low reflection throughout the complete spectrum.
Saab's Signature Management product range currently has a customer base of more than 50 countries worldwide.
These customer relations have been built up during more than 40 years of dedicated development in camouflage and deception.
Military operations often require flexible camouflage that can be used for a number of different objects and situations while continuing to deliver reliable protection against advanced sensors. The ultra-lightweight Winter Camouflage Nets are advanced multispectral camouflage nets that provide unrivalled signature protection for vehicles and other objects in static positions in winter environments.
Saab’s ultra lightweight winter camouflage nets are specially adapted for protection against Ultraviolet. The Winter Camouflage Nets have outstanding multispectral properties and provide protection against detection in relevant parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. The dimension and shape of the camouflage net can be tailored according to customer requirements.
Telescopic support poles are available as accessories. The extendable poles are made from glass fibre and can be customised for each environment. Aluminium or steel ground stakes are available for ground fixation. The camouflage net and accessories can be delivered in a cover bag containing all the parts needed. This makes regular use of the system much easier and protects the system during transportation and storage.
Visual. The Winter Camouflage Nets’ pattern and colours are designed to imitate the colour scheme of snow and winter environment. The pattern and colours can be tailored according to customer requirements. A randomised pattern is used in order to avoid symmetrical shapes in the nets and to improve the visual camouflage performance. Winter Camouflage Nets also have a surface material designed for low gloss.
Ultra Violet. The Winter Camouflage Nets have a high UV reflectance, enabling the system to blend in with a winter environment.
Thermal Infrared. The thermal infrared properties are adapted to obstruct thermal reconnaissance and reduce the risk of detection in all climate conditions. The Winter Camouflage Nets’ thermal properties also provide protection against other threats such as target acquisition systems and heat seeking missiles.
Near Infrared. Pigments used in the Winter Camouflage Nets’ pattern are carefully chosen and adapted to match the near-infrared reflection of vegetation, rocks and soil in the intended environment. The Winter Camouflage Nets’ near-infrared capabilities significantly reduce the risk of being detected by sensors such as night vision devices.
Radar. The Winter Camouflage Nets have radar properties not seen in any other camouflage net and provide protection against radar reconnaissance and homing missiles in the range of 1-100 GHz. The radar characteristics of the net can be customised depending on operational Environment and customer-defined threats.
