Currently within the EU military community there is no common view of or practice in the use of camouflage. This leads to a situation where every nation uses its own experience and equipment, even when multinational forces are deployed together in the same theatre. Differences in camouflage technology and practice may compromise an entire multinational force.
To overcome this situation this project aims at creating a European cross-border network of excellence for camouflage. This network will enable Member States to better define requirements and test and evaluation (T&E) procedures for camouflage specifications and products.
As a pilot project, specifications and T&E methods for a European multi-spectral camouflage net were developed with the aim to enable future cross-border qualification of suppliers and potential common procurement.
