Israel’s Fibrotex Technologies said it won an order for advanced multispectral camouflage systems from Finland’s Army, UPI reported.

Fibrotex said it will provide four types of camouflage systems as part of the long-term agreement that could be worth some $47 million.

The company said the systems were designed to meet the camouflage properties and environmental conditions of Scandinavia. “Thousands” of units are involved and they will be delivered to Finland in the near future, UPI said.

Adi Blum, owner and CEO of Fibrotex, said, “We feel great pride to have been awarded this strategic project, with its leading-edge technical requirements. The Finnish Army Material Command has been a valued customer of ours since 2006, and we are delighted with this award and committed to ensuring that this partnership will continue for years to come.”

Fibrotex’ multispectral camouflage systems protect against various sensors in a variety of ranges, including ultraviolet, visual, near-infrared, thermal, and radar. The systems that will be supplied to Finland are reversible, with each side providing a different camouflage coverage.
