CamoScience App Makes Custom Precision Camo Design a Reality

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

Soldier Systems Daily unveils exclusive photo evidence.

We have mentioned Special Operations Apps and their CamoScience app in the past. CamoScience is an App for Smart Devices like the iPhone 4/5 and IPad 2.

Interestingly, SOA contacted us after reading the recent article published last week here on SSD concerning NECC’s (Naval Expeditionary Combat Command) lack of an issue combat uniform and a version of what appears to be unique Navy DIY Camo. They provided these pictures as photo-evidence of a new solution for the unique requirements of expeditionary units like the NECC and SOF.

As you can see, MW R&D and Special Operations Apps have moved past the proof of concept phase by showing these first public photos of CamoScience App Designs being printed digitally-direct to fabric and using MW R&D’s proprietary processes.

This is a custom camouflage design made real by combining elements from:
-Smart Device
-Reliable Intel (GEOINT)
-Digitally Printing Direct-To-Fabric
-Just-In-Time Custom Manufacturing

According to the company’s President, K. Dominic Cincotti, MW R&D and SOA are in talks now with leading Tactical and Hunting/Outdoor Companies to utilize this new proprietary process. Cincotti is the inventor of Photographic/Camera derived Camouflage.

“The truly great thing about using our process and this App is that it would allow for SOF to make their own CAMO designs”, Cincotti said.

“Operators could use the latest technology, without having to rely on ‘CAMO Artists’, with little knowledge of SOF operational or tactical concerns. The App even converts photos to MilSpec colors if that need exists.”

In 2007 Photo-Realâ„¢ and Photo-Stealthâ„¢ camo debuted. They were printed onto special adhesive vinyls and applied to SOF hardware and equipment. In 2009 a unique grip was added to these technologies and was applied to weapons.

Today, Soldier Systems Daily received these first photos of this new type of camo, produced using completely digital means on textiles. According to the company, a wide range of textiles and fabrics can now be utilized. The printer applies the pattern directly to your grey goods.

SOA in association with MW R&D are now in beta-testing with new Apps for release this winter.

Tac Apps – CamoScience Begets Special Operations Apps

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

The CamoScienceâ„¢ App from MW Research and Development, Inc has spurred the launch of a new company; Special Operations Apps. Their mandate is to “design and field applications specifically for warfighter mobile devices, touchscreens, laptops, and smartphones.” This includes Android and iOS.

“Special Operations Apps uses common platforms, like the Apple or Android systems, to integrate different hardware and equipment and centralize them into common, familiar, smart devices that the operators already know or own,” said K. Dominic Cincotti, who founded MW Research and Development, Inc and also serves president of Special Operations Apps.

“So we lighten the operator’s load and provide more real-time data, improved capabilities, and more effective targeting — taking full advantage of cutting-edge commercial devices without the need for budgeting and developing new and expensive devices and platforms that only serve one function,” he said. “We get more powerful devices at lower costs and without the need to re-invent the wheel.”

As an aside, Cincotti’s father is the late COL Joseph G. Cincotti (USA), the original ground-force commander of Blue Light. If you don’t know your history, do some research on Blue Light.

For the new company, Cathlena Spencer, who the led the commercial-application team for CamoScienceâ„¢ has been named Chief Technology Officer of Special Operations Apps. Mark Tocci, a former Ranger and patent-pending inventor, will serve as Vice President of Business Development. David Mullins, a former Special Forces operator, will lead in-house subject matter experts. I served with Dave and he is a great guy. In fact, his wife encouraged me to earn my degree when she worked at the Smoke Bomb Hill ed center.

Special Operations Apps is based in Wilmington, NC, strategically located between Fort Bragg and Camp Lejeune, and convenient to Virginia Beach, VA.

With both the Army and USASOC hell bent for leather to field Android devices to their troops maybe we can get Special Operations Apps to develop an Android app for us. If you need some work done, they have let us know that requests for new apps should contact them via 650-209-0762.

CamoScience App Coming in April

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

Released at last week’s AUSA Winter Symposium in Orlando, FL, the CamoScience(tm) App from MW Research and Development, Inc will be relased in April. It is designed for use with smartphones and mobile touchscreens (including the upcoming iPad 2) and converts photos into camouflage designs.

CamoScienceâ„¢ is a photo application that turns site-specific photography into what its inventor calls “Photographic Camouflage.”

“‘Photographic Camouflage’ is the term I coined four years ago to describe any ‘camera-derived’ camo design,” said K. Dominic Cincotti, MW Research and Development President.

“Right now, we’re focused on special ops and first responders Apps,” Cincotti said. “They know what challenges they face and how quickly they want their problems solved. We also have our eyes on app developers who, like us, are interested in innovative problem solving. “If you’re in one of those categories, get in touch,” he said.

CamoScienceâ„¢ will also let users design Photographic Camouflage into a touch-screen grip for the iPad 2. Touchscreen grips provide functional, hand-traction grip to keep your iPad 2 safely in your grasp while mobile. This is accomplished with an extremely thin, adhesive graphic “skin,” with a unique frictional, micro-terrain.

We have almost no details about this technology other than their press release. We will update you as we get additional information.
