US4CES™ – Digital Dominance

US4CES™ Family of Camouflage

The ADS Submission for the U.S. Army Family of Camouflage Program.

Why Digital Camo?

Digital patterns outperform analog, non-pixelated, shapes because they are superior at re-creating natural fractals – the geometric shapes found in nature that the brain interprets as background noise. Digital patterns also generate advanced micro and macro-patterns, providing the optimum breakup of the human form at multiple distances, in multiple environments.

ADS and partner Guy Cramer Are Participating in the development of a new family of camouflage patterns for the U.S. Army that are effective across A myriad of environments.

Designed specifically for the Army Camouflage Improvement Effort, US4CES Digital Textured Patterns feature the latest advances in Camouflage research for reduced signature and enhanced survivability.

The Army’s Family of Camouflage Program requirement is to identify a family of patterns with a common geometry and specialized colors for each key environment – Woodland, Arid, and Transitional (between Woodland and Desert). The Army is also exploring a fourth pattern for Organizational Clothing and Individual Equipment (OCIE) and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to integrate with the three core patterns.

Managed by PEO Soldier, the current effort entered Phase IV in January, 2012, and four submissions were downselected for participation including US4CES. This phase consists of a rigorous technical evaluation backed by solid scientific analysis and critical Soldier input from the field. Testing and evaluation has been completed and a winning pattern is expected to be announced late in 2013.

The U.S. Army has concluded that a single (universal) camouflage color scheme for all environments is too much of a compromise and ineffective. The need for specific color schemes for key environments is critical to provide more effective camouflage and increase survivability.
