Saab Selects Tulmar as North American Production Partner for Multispectral Camouflage Systems

Tuesday, May 30th, 2023

Tulmar Safety Systems, a leading supplier of military ground vehicle systems sub-components, has been selected by Saab AB to provide the North American production of Saab’s Barracuda family of multi-spectral camouflage systems.


Henning Robach, the Head of Business Unit Saab Barracuda, emphasized, “Expanding our capacity to manufacture advanced camouflage products is not our sole objective. We sought a partner who could meet our stringent standards for product quality while upholding our core values of equality and environmental responsibility. This partnership enables us to better serve our North American and global customers as we enhance our overall production capacity.”

Tulmar has 30+ years in the field of design and manufacture of engineered textile solutions for military ground vehicle systems such as US Marine Corps LAV-25, US Army Stryker, Canadian Army LAV and TAPV, among others and is trusted by numerous OEMs and systems integrators as a supply chain partner that can be relied upon to deliver quality on time.   This collaboration presents exciting opportunities for knowledge and innovative exchange between the two companies and countries.

Patrick Tallon, President and Chief Executive Officer at Tulmar Safety Systems, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “Our partnership with Saab aligns perfectly with our core engineering and production strengths and offers new avenues for growth. As we prepare for the production of MCS, we are already witnessing the benefits of this Swedish-Canadian collaboration.”

US Marine Corps combat veteran and Tulmar’s Director of Defense Business Development Matt Fisher added “Contemporary combat operations such as the Russo-Ukrainian and Nagorno-Karabakh conflicts highlight the importance of survivability inside a contested area through the application of a ‘hard to find—hard to kill’ approach.  The goal being to defeat the enemy’s ability to detect your forces through a combination of a light footprint, mobility & maneuver, signature management, and deception.  Saab’s Barracuda multi-spectral camouflage systems give allied forces a competitive edge on the current and future battlefield and we are honored to be chosen as their North American production partner.”

As the world’s leading supplier of advanced camouflage systems, Saab’s Barracuda product family includes Mobile Camouflage Systems (MCS) for on-the-vehicle on-the-move capability, Ultra-lightweight Camouflage Screen (ULCAS) static nets, and on-the-body Soldier Systems  for comprehensive multispectral signature management.  Saab’s Barracuda Multi-Spectral Camouflage product family utilize advanced blends of pigments, coatings, and textiles, enabling effective signature management within the electromagnetic spectrum for armoured fighting vehicles, artillery positions, tactical command posts, logistical staging areas, troop/materiel concentrations, and dismounted troops reducing detection by up to 90%. These customizable solutions can counter sensors designed to detect within the ultraviolet, visual, near infrared, short-wave infrared, thermal infrared, and radar spectrum bandwidths.

The limited-edition 6304RDS and 6354RDS holsters are specifically designed for firearms with red dot sights. The featured Automatic Locking System (ALS®) locks the firearm in all directions upon holstering. The ALS is completely operable with the thumb, making it very intuitive to use; once the device is deactivated, a simple straight-up draw can be used.

Key features include:

• ALS® (Automatic Locking Systems) secures firearm once holstered
• For use with red dot optic-equipped weapons
• Includes QLS 19 Locking Fork
• 6304RDS MSRP: $259.75
• 6354RDS MSRP: $233.50
• SafariLaminate™ thermal-molded construction protects firearms and sights
• Suede lined to protect finish
• Cordura® nylon wrap finish reduces infrared (IR) signature
