Mexico Marines Have Selected US4CES Transitional Camo; Have Renamed The Pattern Marina Trans Jungle

Sunday, September 20th, 2015


Hyperstealth has announced that the Naval Infantry of Mexico has selected the US4CES Transitional camo pattern for their uniforms, and have renamed the pattern Marina Trans Jungle. Objective tests were performed in three environments, Lowland Forest in Michoacan, Lowland Scrub Desert in Sinaloa, and Riparian Forest in Coahuila, which pitted the US4CES Transitional pattern against the current Digital Woodland pattern used by the Mexican Marines.

In all three environments, it took observers an overall longer period of time to locate the US4CES pattern than the currently fielded Woodland pattern. A second comparison was conducted, comparing the US4CES pattern to MultiCam in the same environments, again with the US4CES pattern taking an overall longer period of time to locate within the environments.

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.

Then, you’ll need to comment on Facebook.com/adsinc explaining that SSD sent you and which US4CES pattern you like and why. For example, “SSD sent me here, I like US4CES OCIE Pattern because I like how it blends with all of the other patterns (btw, if we see that statement cut and pasted word for word, you won’t win).

Still Think US4CES Camo Looks Just Like MARPAT?

Thursday, November 1st, 2012


I’ve heard from more than one commenter that the ADS Inc US4CES family of patterns ( US Army Camo Improvement Program Finalists) is just like MARPAT. Here, co-developer, Guy Cramer of HyperStealth Biotechnology Corp explains the differences.

Guy Cramer, President/CEO of Hyperstealth, developed US4CES pattern independent of MARPAT. He came up with new Macro and Micro patterns designed to increase effectiveness at much greater distances than MARPAT which will isoluminate (The pattern appears as one color rather than four removing the disruptive quality) at much closer distances than US4CES.

Another improvement comes with the “Boundary Luminance Gradient” between the two dominant color layers which create a better disruption element between the two similar hues. Colorblind people see similar color layers the same and the disruption effect is lost – the green hue of night vision has the same effect and the target shape is easier to detect, thus the boundary luminance gradient helps separate these colors even under colorblind conditions. It also adds a 3D effect and the brain interprets this as depth and texture further confusing the vision processing system.

The Macro pattern was also designed to break up the human shape more effectively than had been accomplished with previous patterns.


HyperStealth claims this photo is taken under Night Vision but the color looks a bit off to me. Either way, you can see the differences in the patterns when they are side by side.
