Urban Camo from HyperStealth – Updated

Friday, October 28th, 2011

This photo, taken this week at SecureTech, is of HyperStealth Biotechnology Corporation’s urban camo pattern called CUEPAT-2.

Developed under contract for the Canadian Department of National Defence, Defence Research and Development Canada Suffield, (DRDC-S) to develop a Canadian Urban Environment Pattern (CUEPAT) based on the unique requirements of Canada’ss three major metropolitan areas, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.

These patterns are currently under trial and the winner will end up being used for CBRNE suits. We also hear rumor that the DND is talking about expanding the pattern(s) to CANSOF use.
