PETAH TIKVA, Israel, Jan. 21 (UPI) -- Advanced multispectral camouflage systems are to be supplied to Finland's Defense Forces by Fibrotex Technologies of Israel.

The company announced it will provide four types of camouflage systems as part of the long-term agreement that could be worth more than $47 million.

The exact number of systems to be supplied was not disclosed, but the company said "thousands" would be involved and the systems would be delivered to Finland in the near future.

"We feel great pride to have been awarded this strategic project, with its leading-edge technical requirements," said Adi Blum, owner and chief executive officer of Fibrotex. "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 the Finland are reversible, with each side providing a different camouflage coverage.

The systems were developed to meet the camouflage properties and environmental conditions of Scandinavia.
