AUSA – Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp

Wednesday, October 14th, 2015

Hyperstealth frontman Guy Cramer was in the ADS Inc booth sporting a uniform cut from the Ghostex Kilo 6 camouflage pattern.  An international customer was well into making a procurement decision when their armed forces streamlined their camouflage patterns into two variants.  Consequently, Hyperstealth is shopping the pattern.

When I passed by later, Hyperstealth had added two displays from the Mexican Marines, depicting the kit they are procuring in their new camouflage pattern, derived from work Hyperstealth did for Phase IV of the US Army’s Camouflage Improvement Effort.

Obviously, there is a great deal of influence from the USMC but I was surprised to see the RAT boot on the chart.   
You’ll also note some equipment items from London Bridge.


You Never Know Where They’ll Show Up

I ran into my friend Guy Cramer at Warrior East and he was sporting our giveaway reflective patch on his US4CES pack.

US4CES Bravo and Charlie Variants Released For Sale

Monday, December 16th, 2013

ADS Inc. and US4CES designer Guy Cramer, have decided to use Hyperstealth’s print on demand process developed by Cramer, President/CEO of Hyperstealth to release 45 new US4CES patterns in two new series: 15 US4CES Bravo Series patterns and 30 US4CES Charlie Series patterns to the commercial market and for printed camouflage trial material to foreign countries outside of the U.S. looking for a new advanced camouflage uniform.

The Alpha variants of US4CES are finalists in the still unresolved US Army Camouflage Improvement Effort and are not yet available for sale. However, with any of these patterns, you get the same technology improvements offered to the Army but in different colorways. Another difference between Alpha and Bravo, is in the color layering, reversing the order of lightest to darkest colors (the patterns are identical other than the color order). Additionally, none of these are NIR compliant.



The Delta variants were also developed for the US Army and in internal testing Cramer found that they performed better. The Charlie variants have been released for sale commercially. The difference between US4CES Delta and Charlie is in the color layering, reversing the order of lightest to darkest colors.



70/30 Poly/Cotton Lightweight fabric is now available for order in 5 yd increments. So everybody that has been chomping at the bit to get their hands on the US4CES patterns, this is your chance.

Guy Cramer Talks Camo Part V – Phase IV C3: Camouflage, Color and Cost

Friday, June 28th, 2013

In Part V, Guy Cramer continues on with his in depth examination of the US Army’s Camouflage Improvement Effort by discussing his take on the cause of delays, their cost and goes right into some rather interesting comparisons of various candidate patterns. Seeing them side by side in this manner is very enlightening.


This is just one example of what you have waiting for you at

Guy Cramer Answer The Question “Why US4CES?”

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

In Part 4 of his ongoing look at modern camouflage and specifically how it all fits into the US Army Camouflage Improvement Effort, Guy Cramer explains why his pattern (in concert with ADS Inc), US4CES is the answer.


One thing I was fascinated with was the bit on US4CES-Alpha and Delta. I had forgotten all about the Delta variant and that it had featured colors that flowed from one into the other. Conventional wisdom seemed to favor that method, but it didn’t perform as well as the hard lines.

There’s a lot of science in this article but Guy does a good job of breaking it down for you. Additionally, he offers lots of comparison photos. Even if you aren’t a fan of US4CES, this is a MUST read!

Guy Cramer released some additional US4CES photos to illustrate the effective of family of patterns he developed with ADS Inc for the US Army Camouflage Improvement Effort. One of four finalists patterns, US4CES consists of an OCIE pattern in addition to Woodland, Arid and Transitional variants that all share the same pattern geometry with color variations based on application. The Secretary of the Army is expected to announce the selection for a new family of camouflage patterns on the US Army’s birthday, June 14.


Here we see the US4CES transitional pattern next to the OCP (MultiCam) which was used as a Government baseline during the effort.


Above is the US Navy’s AOR 2 which was used as a Government baseline during the effort next to US4CES Woodland.

Guy Cramer Talks Camo on CNN

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

Filmed in August, CNN broadcast a report by Chris Lawrence entitled “New technology makes troops invisible.”

He interviews Guy Cramer of Canada’s HyperStealth Biotechnology Corp and partner of ADS Inc in their bid to win the US Army’s ongoing Camouflage Improvement Effort. The ADS/Cramer team produced the finalist US4CES pattern. Rumor has it that the Chief of Staff of the Army will be briefed this week on the results of the extensive testing undertaken to find a new family of camouflage patterns for use the the Army.

Cramer goes on to very briefly discuss his Quantum Stealth technology. As I understand it, CNN spent more than an hour with Cramer and yet edited it down to less than three minutes. It’s too bad because we want to hear Cramer speak more about his advanced camouflage concepts.
