By The ITS Crew

Soldier Systems has just gone live with the post we’ve all been waiting for on this camouflage conundrum.

overall_performanceThe Natick camo study (2007-2009) results have finally been *officially* released to the press, and are interesting to say the least.

Update: Here’s a link to the entire Natick Photosimulation Camouflage Detection Test

Natick testers have released a chart showing how the patterns rank by environment.

If you’ve been wondering, as we have, what Desert Brush Camo and Syrian Camo truly look like, here are the Natick test images.




Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense, gave the Army until Sept. 30 to find a new camo pattern to replace the ineffective UCP. As reported earlier, the Army will soon pit UCP “Delta” against Crye Multicam in an attempt to find a solution.

Natick is the U.S. Army Soldier Systems Center (SSC), located in Natick, Massachusetts. it’s the Army’s one-stop Soldier-support organization  responsible for researching, developing, fielding, and managing food, clothing, shelters, airdrop systems, and Soldier support items.
