Saab has signed a framework contract with the French defense procurement agency (DGA) for the supply of its Barracuda multispectral camouflage systems. The contract is for eight years and provides for annual deliveries.

In addition to the delivery of the advanced camouflage systems, the order includes a joint work phase during which Saab will work in cooperation with the DGA to adapt the Barracuda camouflage solutions to the French Army’s operational requirements.

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

Saab offers a unique package of advanced state-of-the art Barracuda camouflage systems and protection solutions, designed to limit the enemy’s detection and attack capabilities. Various solutions and configurations are available to protect camps, individuals, vehicles, weapon stations, sensors equipment and other assets in any type of terrain or environment. Saab’s Barracuda advanced camouflage systems have been delivered to more than 45 countries. 

Solarmtex S.A.S, located in Vierzon, will be the local industrial and distribution partner for Saab’s Barracuda signature management and camouflage products in France.
