Helikon-Tex Offers PenCott-WildWood Camouflage

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

PenCott-WildWood® is a new pattern based on the well-proven and widely used PenCott® pattern geometry, developed at the request of Polish Special Forces. Working in close cooperation, Hyde Definition® and Helikon-Tex® created WildWood® to be an optimal pattern for the temperate woodland and grassland areas found in Central and Eastern Europe – and other similar terrains around the world.

The process began with re-appraising the GreenZone® pattern to boost the brown tones and desaturate the green tone. In-field digital colour sampling was used to analyze and verify the individual colours in the palette. Through several iterations of evaluating digital prints in-the-field we optimized and defined the final colour values and printing standards for the production of WildWood® fabrics.

WildWood® incorporates all of the features that make PenCott® patterns the most advanced and effective concealment solutions on the market today:

· 3-in-1 / 360° pattern geometry: the inclusion of large, medium and small fractal shapes makes the patterns effective at close, mid, and long range – and, because of its non-linear orientation, the full effectiveness of the pattern is retained whether the wearer is standing, kneeling or prone.

· Depth + Blending + Disruption: the combination of multi-sized fractal shapes, high-difference boundary layers and a hypoacuitively dithered micro-pattern creates the illusion of depth, whilst also creating a pattern that both blends into the terrain and disrupts the shape of the wearer.

·    Natural tones and textures: the complex, hybrid design of WildWood® also delivers a pattern that looks more ‘organic’, natural and textured than typical digital patterns.

WildWood® is the optimum camouflage solution wherever the vegetation is a bit drier or sparser. WildWood® joins the existing PenCott® pattern family of GreenZone® for verdant environments, BadLands® for semi-arid environments, SnowDrift® for winter environments and SandStorm® for arid environments.  WildWood® is also very compatible with GreenZone® and BadLands® clothing and equipment.

Fibrotex USA Selected to Deliver the U.S. Army’s Next-Generation Camouflage System

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

• New ULCANS multispectral camouflage system will mask soldiers, vehicles and installations from state-of-the-art electro-optical sensors and radars

• Battle-winning, lightweight technology will be made in the USA to protect soldiers on operations around the world

WASHINGTON, D.C., November, 08 2018: Fibrotex USA Inc has won the contract to supply the U.S. Army’s Next-Generation Ultra-Light Camouflage Netting System (ULCANS), proven to deliver world-leading protection across the electromagnetic spectrum. The contract is a 10-year, indefinite delivery / indefinite quantity award, with a total value of USD480 million. Full-rate production is expected to begin in early 2019.

Fibrotex USA’s new ULCANS contract is the result of a nearly two-year long period of highly competitive testing, trials and data collection conducted by the U.S. Army’s Natick Soldier Systems Center (PM-FSS), which assessed camouflage technologies from major global manufacturers against the Army’s most advanced battlefield surveillance sensors.

Ultra-Light Camouflage Netting System (ULCANS)
The combat-proven technologies underpinning the new ULCANS are based on technology  developed by parent company Fibrotex Technologies Ltd (FTL) over the last two decades, but have been specially modified for the U.S. Department of Defense. ULCANS will be manufactured in a new state-of-the-art vertical manufacturing facility in McCreary County, Kentucky – the only such facility in the U.S. – creating and securing hundreds of new skilled American jobs over the next ten years.

Kentucky Congressman Harold ‘Hal’ Rogers said “I firmly believe we have the best workforce in the country and that their hard work and dedication has earned these new jobs, helping deliver a vital new military contract from McCreary County. I take great pride in knowing that our people are crafting these products to keep our warfighters and allies safe, giving them an edge on the battlefield.”

The new facility is being established next to Outdoor Venture Corporation (OVC), which is a strategic partner to Fibrotex USA, and has been delivering soldier support systems to the U.S. Army for decades.

Mr. Malleron, CEO of Fibrotex USA: “Today more than ever military forces and opposition groups are using night vision sensors and thermal devices against our troops, but by using Fibrotex’ camouflage, concealment and deception solutions we make them undetectable again, allowing them to continue keeping us safe and SAVE LIVES.”

“We have more than 50 years of experience, with thousands of hours in the field and a deep understanding of conventional and asymmetric warfare. The U.S. Army tested our best camouflage solutions and the camouflage repeatedly demonstrated the ability to defeat all sensors known to be operating in the battlefield and throughout the electromagnetic spectrum.”

Fibrotex’ 2D ULCANS technology provides more persistent IR, thermal & counter-radar performance and offers a greater range of capabilities than known before. Fibrotex USA will deliver the material in reversible designs – allowing for the first time a different pattern and capability on each ­­side, enabling soldiers, vehicles and systems to disappear into light/dark woodland, snow/alpine and desert/urban environments, blending into the terrain in all weather conditions, anywhere on the globe.

Fibrotex USA new Vertical manufacturing facility in KY will become the new Camouflage “home” and will provide a one-stop-shop for all solutions provided under one roof.
