Technical specification

Pocket Cam

In order to cope with the rapidly changing threat and intensity of modern military operations, the equipment load on each individual soldier is constantly increasing. Still, equipment for survivability cannot be discarded from the personal gear. Our solution to this problem is simply to make things smaller and lighter. The Pocket Camouflage Net is an extremely lightweight solution suitable for situations that require quick access to personal camouflage.

General

Saab offers a complete range of Personal Camouflage Systems. The intention 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 Pocket Camouflage Net has visual and near-infrared properties and is intended to be a natural part of every soldier’s equipment. The extremely light and compact design allows the camouflage net to be stowed and carried in a uniform or combat vest pocket.

Signature Management Properties

  • Pattern. The Pocket Camouflage Net has a pixel pattern that is designed to blend in with the surroundings at both short and long distances. Seen up close, each individual pixel is clearly visible, creating a highly resolved pattern. From a distance the pattern merges into larger shapes, thereby giving depth to the camouflage in the same way as natural vegetation. The pixel pattern design also allows background variations within the colour scheme, without decreased camouflage properties.
  • Colours. Three different pattern colours are available in the basic configuration of the Pocket Camouflage Net; woodland, desert, and stony desert. If needed, the colour scheme can be customised to suit any environment. The colours in the base configuration are carefully chosen to imitate the intended surroundings, both in the visual and near-infrared wave bands.
  • Near Infrared. Pigments used in the Pocket Camouflage 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 Pocket Camouflage Net provide protection against night vision devices and other related threats.

Material

The Pocket Camouflage Net is ultra light and weighs approximately 100g/m². The one layer ‘non-snagging’ construction ensures a long service life for the system. The size and colours of the Pocket Camouflage Net can both be customised to the end-user’s requirements.
