Section I. OPERATION UNDER NORMAL CONDITIONS
When deploying the ULCANS over vehicles, weapons, and semi-permanent positions, care
must be exercised to prevent the garnished (top) side of the screen from tearing on sharp
corners, extruding pointed objects, or accessories such as mirrors, bumpers, antennas,
mounted armament, poles, stakes, beams, etc. If multiple screens are required, screens will
be assembled prior to deployment. When deploying ULCANS, a screen location should be
identified at the outside edge for an entry/egress doorway for personnel, equipment, or vehicles as
required. Inventory ULCANS contents and assemble multiple screen systems as required before
placing over the item to be camouflaged.
Section II. ULCANS DEPLOYMENT/RETRIEVAL INSTRUCTIONS
The following instructions shall apply when deploying ULCANS.
The radar scattering ULCANS must not be placed over active radar
equipment because it will seriously interfere with the operation of radar
equipment underneath it.
To prevent personal injury, a minimum of a "two-person lift" is required for
both the ULCANS screen system and the support system storage/transport
containers. Components may increase in weight due to trapped or absorbed
water. Use additional personnel as needed
To prevent personal injury, secure dog tags, remove jewelry, individual
equipment, and clothing items that can become snagged during deployment
or striking of ULCANS screens. Failure to observe this warning can result in
severe injury, loss of limb or death from falling.
Climbing on and around the equipment to deploy ULCANS can pose a fall
hazard. Extreme caution should be observed to avoid slippery or uneven
surfaces and other trip hazards. Use handhold when provided and ladders
Particles of dirt and debris carried by netting/garnish can be scraped off and
fall into the operators eyes when looking upward during setup and takedown
of ULCANS. Eye protection is required during setup and takedown
operations of ULCANS.
