digitally camouflaged phone tower

17 08 2008

Having myself just completed a contract to design a pixellated “digital” camo scheme for a privately owned wind turbine, I found this press release by my North American competitor Guy Cramer, of Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp (I`m guessing he just loves sci-fi!), interesting:

Invisible Towers (See: Invisible Towers).has acquired an exclusive license from HyperStealth to wrap cellular towers within the United States with HyperStealth Camouflage patterns using the HyperStealth “Consealment” 3M Printed Adhesive Vinyl. In 2007 Invisible Towers won an industry wide award for Innovation after wrapping two towers in 2006 with HyperStealth Consealment Camouflage to meet regulatory and/or community approval.

The four color HyperStealth Cloudcam version used on the Baltimore cellular tower uses White, Tan, Gray and Sky Blue as the only concealment required is for the variable sky conditions.

I have seen two mobile phone towers disguised as trees and they were more convincing than the digital cloud pattern. What if you have a blue sky? A blue/grey pattern may have been better. The actual transceiver is not camouflaged though.
I liked the artificial tree (radio transceiver) at the Mara Serena lodge in Kenya.

Yes, the metal towers were made to look like conifer trees. They had a brown bark effect pattern on, and had branches protruding out to the sides with green plastic foliage. The actual transceiver wasn’t camouflaged though, it was light grey.
