France’s procurement agency the Direction générale de l’armement (DGA) has signed a framework contract with Saab for the supply of multispectral BARRACUDA camouflage systems. The contract includes the delivery of new camouflage systems as well as a system adaptation phase in cooperation with the DGA. The contract is for eight years and allows for annual deliveries. The local industrial and distribution partner is Solarmtex S.A.S. in Vierzon, about 200 km south of Paris.
In addition to the delivery of the camouflage systems for the operational areas of the French Army, the order includes a joint work phase during which the Barracuda camouflage solutions will be specifically adapted to the French Army’s operational requirements.
Barracuda camouflage systems are used by armed forces in more than 45 countries, according to Saab.
