Scott Duncan, Defence Research and Development Canada in Suffield, Alta. :
Pugliese notes that Ottawa was left off the list for the "Canadian Urban Environment Pattern".
"If you were to refer back to the Canada First Defence Strategy, one of the principal mandates that has been given to our military is that they must provide protection to the citizens of Canada and help exercise Canadian sovereignty.
Given our large urban population, should any operations be required, there's a good probability that some of them will be taking place in urban environments."
"We're not trying to slight any city in the country," explained Duncan.
The design contract has been awarded to HyperStealth Biotechnology Corp. in Maple Ridge, B.C.
In addition to examples of their digital camoflage designs used around the world, it also includes "HyperStealth Golf hats with the Passive Negative Ion Generator installed within the material of the hat" in a 2002 article about using negative ions "to increase endurance levels by as much as 900%, balance coordination by 300%, and reaction time by 100%"
I know my golf game could use a little help. Maybe we should get some of those golf hats for the Canadian soldiers deployed to Canadian cities as well.
Canadian ion scientist and Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp co-founder Guy Cramer also predicts election results at his other venture, United Dynamics Corp., using "Basic Forecasted Daily Ion Polarity Data" and, if I understand correctly, the "Full Moon Effect".
The $25,000 study to come up with the Canadian city camo design is due in March next year for consideration by the Canadian military.
