MMI Textiles, Inc. attended a Joint Advance Planning Brief to Industry held by the DLA Troop Support Clothing and Textiles. MMI was able to showcase one of their newest and most exciting ventures, Unequal® Military.
 

JAPBI and DLA Troop Support set aside room for vendors to showcase their latest “Innovations-Generation Next”. Intended for material and component suppliers to provide information and samples on innovations in new materials or technology that could be used in the development of new end items. MMI took full advantage of this opportunity by giving out samples of Unequal® Military products while informing people of the advantages it presents.
 

The conference, held in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, gave MMI the unique opportunity to highlight these things to a large audience that included military personnel and a wide variety of manufacturers that supply end items, from body armor to apparel, to all branches of the military.

Camouflage Fabric History

by MMI Textiles 7. January 2013 15:50

Today, camouflage uniforms are worn by all soldiers in the military. Yet, many armies prior to 1915 wore very colorful uniforms.  The French Army developed the first unit dedicated to camouflage.  Artists were enlisted to help design camouflage.  In 1942 the US Army began camouflage development.

Camouflage is an important part of the modern Army. It is a tool that breaks up the soldier’s recognizable   human form. This blending into the environment enables the solider to spot the enemy first.

 Military camouflage has changed over the years due to the change in terrain and camouflage science.  There is the khaki and green of WWII; the olive drab of Korea and Vietnam; the woodland color of the Cold War and Balkans; the 'chocolate chip' pattern of the Gulf War; the desert pattern of Afghanistan and Iraq; and the grey pixel pattern of today.”

 Soldiers aren’t the only ones using camouflage fabrics.  Hunting camouflage was developed in the late 1970’s.  Jim Crumley used a Magic Marker on brown dyed work clothes to create a tree bark pattern.  Hunting camouflage serves a similar purpose to military camouflage. It allows the hunter to spot the target before they are spotted.

Camouflage has proven to be a very useful tool.  We here at MMI Textiles are encouraged by the advances made in camouflage science as it helps to keep our military safe. We would also like to thank all that have served to protect our freedom.
