ATACS is a universal pattern concept. There will be environmentally specific variations. each of which are in-turn, designed to work in a wide range of settings. The current pattern variant is designed to work in a variety of
o rocky or
o urban environments.
? Additionally, the ?visual noise? in these same patterns tends to make them close-up into a solid color, producing a ?blobbing? effect when viewed from a distance. A-TACS addresses and improves these critical issues in three ways:
o Replace un-natural square pixels with organic pixels. Utilizing our patented process, we created a palette of natural colors digitally sampled from real-world elements in carefully controlled lighting. The pattern is then created using a mathematical algorithm that writes ?organically-shaped? pixels using the specific color information given. The resulting pattern while still digital, is far more organic in appearance
o Use small patterns to create larger more distinct shapes designed to work at a distance. Small shapes create larger shapes and larger shapes are organized into a distinct pattern with no horizontal or vertical orientation. This unique ?pattern within a pattern? concept allows A-TACS to effectively break the human outline at great distances thereby, minimizing the ?blobbing? effect of other patterns when viewed from a distance
o More effective use of color-range produces a better concealment system. A-TACS is created using a far greater range of inter-mingled natural colors than was previously possible. The overall base color for the cast is a neutral tan which is designed for use in open, rocky or arid environments.
You may notice that we didn't use the EMERSON FG ATACS pattern in our previous video as we didn't have it then. But now we do in EXTRA-LARGE!
