1-12. CLASSIFICATION, CAMOUFLAGE SCREENING TYPES, AND CLASS
Proper identification of screens must be maintained at all times. Do
not remove or lose identification tags that are attached to screens.
Do not use a radar transparent screen in place of a radar scattering
screen. When two or more screens are joined together, ensure that
the screens are of the same type by checking each screens
The radar scattering ULCANS must not be placed over active radar
equipment because it will seriously interfere with the operation of the
radar equipment underneath it.
a. Classification, Type, Class, and Frequency. ULCANS provides concealment of military
ground equipment when tactically deployed. ULCANS will provide visual, electro-optic, radar, and
infrared signature reduction characteristics. ULCANS Type III shall be used for general purpose, radar
transparent and Type IV shall be used for general purpose, radar scattering concealment.
ULCANS Type III
- Used for general purpose visual (radar transparent)
concealment of tactical systems.
ULCANS Type IV
- Used for general purpose radar scattering concealment of
tactical systems, 6-94 GHz radar scattering.
b. Table 1-2, Table 1-3, and Table 1-4 provide weight, minimum support system
components, and maximum pole heights for Type III and IV screen systems.
