Saab Barracuda LLC was awarded two delivery orders totaling U.S. $102 Million in October 2004 for ULCANS (Ultra Lightweight Camouflage Net System) from the U.S. Defense.

These two delivery orders increased our current backlog to $150 Million which gives our employees a sense of security in planning their future and allows our suppliers to forecast demand and be in a better position to provide us with materials used in our production." says Robert Martin, Acting President of Saab Barracuda LLC.

Since 1997, Saab Barracuda LLC has been the sole provider of ULCANS to the U.S. Army. ULCANS, available under NSN for both Woodland and Desert variants, is being fielded by the U.S. Army as the replacement of the former generation camouflage nets. Together with Saab Barracuda AB in Sweden, Saab Barracuda is the world leader in producing customized advanced Signature Management Products offering multi-spectral protection against visual, near infrared, thermal infrared, and radar detection and targeting devices.


Saab is one of the world's leading high-technology companies, with its main operations focusing on defence, aviation and space. The group covers a broad spectrum of competence and capabilities in systems integration.
