MODULAR CAMOUFLAGE SYSTEM
FEAR GEAR was founded in 2009 with the intent of developing a camouflage pattern that was completely modular, a pattern that could be re-configured to provide effective concealment in any global operating environment, something that has not yet been achieved by any other single pattern.
Over the last ten years ISAF operations have been focused on the Middle East but due to the diversity of the terrain many of the contributing countries have had struggled to field effective camouflage for the soldiers in theater, some have developed entirely new patterns with varying success, others have adopted commercial patterns and some have just tried to re-work their original pattern with a more appropriate color palette. This issue has drawn attention to the importance of a patterns diversity. There is no such thing as a "universal pattern" and even transitional patterns have their limits.
FEAR Camo was designed specifically to address this issue, the approach was to create a multi-directional "modular camouflage system" a pattern designed from concept to be a re-configurable package: The layers of the pattern can be arranged to created three different textures, each texture having it's own characteristics such as neutral, subdued and dominant macro elements and high, medium and low frequency visual noise. Each configuration can be loaded with any one of our pre-calibrated color palettes enabling us to tailor a variant to match the texture (ambient resolution) and naturally occurring colors of any environment.
The pattern uses layering techniques to create a perception of depth or relief by simulating light reflecting off a solid object or surface by incorporating highlights and shadows. This is achieved by carefully calculated placement of light, medium and darker elements (enhanced fractals) which gives an otherwise 2D shape the appearance of being a 3D physical object whether it be a clump of leaves, an outcrop of rock or a depression in the ground.
These two combined attributes not only create a diverse spectrum of camouflage variants that offer unprecedented environmental concealment but also provide a distinctive signature for visual identification which is essential during joint operations and is especially well suited to special forces units that may require rapid development of a specific variant.
