U.S. Army Camouflage Solicitation Submissions In

Roggenwolf: Warg5U (Timberwolf) and Warg5T (Transitional)

This past Wednesday was the final date for all camouflage design companies to respond to the Solicitation put forth by the U.S. Army for the Camouflage Improvement Effort. Many of the camouflage companies we have covered over the past year including Roggenwolf with Tiwaz, and Digital Concealment Systems best known for A-TACS, acknowledged that they completed their submission to Natick Research Development and Engineering Command.

Other entrants that were expected to make submissions include Bulldog Equipment, Hyde Definition, and we just recently heard that Guy Cramer's HyperStealth Biotechnology Corp. was expected to enter a Family of Camouflage patterns to compete among the rest.

Mr. Cramer is making the rounds as of late with his latest innovation of Quantum Stealth camouflage which bends light around an object causing it to disappear. We are not too sure a family of patterns is even needed with such technology being possible. Perhaps he is saving it for the Canadians. I write in jest, simply for not getting the opportunity to see it myself.

In related news our friends over at Equipped.Pl, shared the great photos seen here of Roggenwolf's Warg Camouflage field shots. The Warg family of patterns is being trialed for the Polish Army's Future Soldier Project in conjunction with uniforms manufactured by SPECOPS.This Warg patterns utilize the same Dwimor™ technology which Roggenwolf uses to design its latest camouflage including the Tiwaz family of patterns submitted to the U.S. Army.

Mr. Brad Turner of Roggenwolf notes that this technique utilizes complex mathematical constructs to pseudo-randomly mix pixels at the boundaries between micropattern elements. The scattering of edge pixels reduces the acutance between micropattern elements. As a result, the camouflage pattern becomes inherently out of focus; and this, in turn challenges the ability of the human eye to focus on it, thus concealing the object it is covering.

Hopefully now that all the paperwork is done and the samples are in the hands of the officials, we can start to hear more about the entrants and hopefully seem some imagery come of this.
