and other equipment from His Majesty King Abdullah. Customs Department
Director General Alaa Batayneh thanked King Abdullah for his continued
support for the department’s efforts, including the fight against drug
smuggling and trafficking.
(May 21, 2006, Vancouver, B.C.) The Kingdom of Jordan Customs Department proudly wore their new KA2 Digital Camouflage which is the seventh color scheme in the series to be revealed as they received new automatic pistols developed personally by King Abdullah II.
The KA2 digital camouflage pattern was developed in 2003 by HyperStealth Biotechnology Corp., a Canadian company based in Vancouver, B.C. after King Abdullah commissioned Guy Cramer, President and CEO of HyperStealth, to design an advanced digital camouflage pattern (called KA2) for Jordan's Army / Air Force, Navy, Special Forces, Royal Guard, Public Security (Police), Civil Defense and Customs officers. To-date over 390,000 uniforms have been manufactured in seven different color schemes.
The KA2 Customs Desert color scheme is quite different from the KA2 Army / Air Force Digital Desert, as it is quite a bit lighter than the dark red/brown which dominates much of Jordan's landscape. The boarders of Jordan typically have a lighter desert background and thus this color scheme is ideal for these regions as Jordan Customs is also responsible for Anti-Smuggling where this camouflage becomes very important.
The fact that Jordan has supplied their Customs Department a camouflage scheme which is likely one of the best desert patterns in the world shows King Abdullah's commitment to using advanced innovations such as their camouflage as a Force Multiplier.
HyperStealth is developing new camouflage patterns for the Jordanian Counter Terrorism Battalion 71, using recent research findings that have advanced the knowledge and understanding of special concealment techniques in urban and night settings.
Jordan continues to develop and expand their digital concealment programs with HyperStealth® Biotechnology Corp. for their Military and Security Vehicles, Equipment and Aircraft.
