|United States Army is on the way for a new set of camouflage patterns for combat uniforms.|
United States Army is now one step closer to selecting a new set of camouflage
patterns that could replace what Soldiers are wearing now in most places.
As part of the "Phase IV" camouflage effort, the Army this week
awarded contracts to five vendors -- selected from an initial 20 -- to
each provide enough fabric in the new camouflage patterns they have developed
to produce 150 uniforms for the Army to test.

vendor had been asked to produce a "family of camouflage patterns,"
including one that would be suitable in a woodland environment, one that
would be suitable in a desert environment, and one that would work in
a "transitional" environment.
