Fractal Camouflage and New Digitized Tiger Stripe Camo Patterns by David Crane

This is a follow-up to our article, "Fracture Camouflage™: You can’t hit what you can’t see." DefRev spoke with Guy Cramer, the man behind Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp.’s proprietary "Fracture Camouflage", last week. We found out that Mr. Cramer has additional camouflage patterns that utilize the same "proprietary graphics techniques" known as "Camouflage Designated Enhanced Fractal Geometry", or "C2G".
This "Camouflage Designated Enhanced Fractal Geometry", or "C2G", is currently being developed and marketed out of Boulder, Colorado by Guy Cramer’s U.S. corporation (and Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp.’s sister company), United Dynamics Corp. C2G, or Fracture Camouflage, actually…
comes in a wide variety of patterns.
While all of these digitized fractal patterns are different, they pretty much all share the same (or at least highly similar) technology. Fracture Camouflage/Camouflage Designated Enhanced Fractal Geometry (C2G) doesn’t just work on a two-dimensional plane. Rather, it fools the human brain into perceiving depth, as well, thus adding a 3-dimensional optical illusion to the mix. This is where things really get tricky, since this 3D effect has to be modulated correctly, in order to fool the observer. If you over-do the effect, the brain will sense that there’s too much of a depth-of-perspective change in too small a space.

By the way, in case any of our readers are wondering what caused Mr. Cramer to invent Fracture Camouflage/Camouflage Designated Enhanced Fractal Geometry (C2G), Guy told me over the phone that when he saw the USMC’s digitized camouflage pattern (digital camouflage), he immediately thought that he could come up with something better/more effective. And, as it happens (and without getting to specific as to the means), he had the background, knowledge base, and wherewithal to make it happen.

Fracture Camouflage/Camouflage Designated Enhanced Fractal Geometry (C2G) is indeed an intriguing infantry camouflage technology that DefRev is going to keep a close eye on. One of Cramer’s latest projects is his new "TIGERPAT" (Digital Tiger Stripe Pattern) and "TIGERPAT Plus" (TPP), a.k.a. Enhanced Digital Tiger Stripe Pattern, which are digital camouflage versions of "Tiger Stripe" camouflage, which is owned and marketed by Michael Bauer through his company, Tiger Stripe Products.

Rogue Modular Combat Systems (RMCS), a Tiger Stripe Products licensee, specializes in matching Tiger Stripe gear that will totally outfit the combat professional." According to the Rogue Modular Combat Systems (RMCS) website, SMCS is the first company to offer products using the new TIGERPAT Plus digitized camouflage (digital camouflage) patterns.
POC for Rogue Modular Combat Systems (SMCS) is Lawrence Stevens. Lawrence can be reached at 416-454-1073. DefRev doesn’t have email address info for Lawrence, yet.
