COLUMBUS, GA.- A-TACS® answers the call with the rerelease of the company’s flagship pattern: Original AU®. Based on Consumer demand, A-TACS® has decided to bring our original AU pattern back to market. “It was through discussions with our brand partners and end-user inquiries for product availability in A-TACS AU, that we felt the timing was right to rerelease,” said Phil Duke (owner, pattern designer). Based on Consumer demand, A-TACS® has decided to bring our original AU pattern back to market.

A-TACS Original AU (Arid/Urban) first launched at the inception of the A-TACS brand in 2009.  A-TACS® was the first company to introduce the “pattern within a pattern” concept, which utilized micro patterns segmented into larger macro patterns.  The use of effective color grouping combined with innovative camouflage design enhanced the pattern’s natural ability to break up the human outline and create visual distortion at a greater distance.  With users including military personnel, Special Operation Forces, Law Enforcement, private contractors, government agencies, as well as recreational enthusiasts, Patterns developed by A-TACS have seen use worldwide.  A-TACS continues as a trusted name in the camouflage industry long known for the development of creative theatre specific concealment solutions. 

Digital Concealment Systems® (DCS) is the only company in the concealment industry developing patterns for all facets of the market.  In 2007, founder and pattern designer Phil Duke left a marketing and pattern design position at one of the top two camo brands in the outdoor industry to form his own camouflage company NEXT Camo®, LLC.  Soon after, the company introduced a series of successful traditional realistic “leaf and twig” camouflage patterns and later founded it’s two sister companies A-TACS Camo® and Raider Concealment®.  DCS specializes in bringing both hunting and tactical camouflage patterns to market in a wide variety of applications.
