PD Systems Supports Testing Two Sided Nets for the U.S. Marine Corp and the U.S. Army

ALEXANDRIA, VA, January 29, 2010 – PD Systems , a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business, is currently involved in the testing of two candidate camouflage nets, which if successful, will provide the Army and the Marine Corp with a single reversible net to accommodate both woodland and desert environments.

PD Systems is supporting the Night Vision, Electronic Sensors Directorate at Fort Belvoir, VA in all aspects of the test regime. The test effort is funded through the U.S. Marine Corps’ MarCorSysCom at Quantico, VA.

The current standard net, the Ultra-lightweight Camouflage Net System (ULCANS) consists of two variants, woodland and desert, which are combined in a single net with the candidate nets being tested.

Field testing, including visual, NIR and thermal data collection has been completed at both woodland and desert sites, using the PD Systems’ Camouflage test frames.

PD Systems is currently conducting laboratory observer trials to assess the visual effectiveness of the candidate nets when compared to that of the current ULCANS.
