The New York Quartermaster Procurement Agency was initially intended to serve two purposes. It was to succeed the Philadelphia Depot as the main center for the procurement of Army clothing and textiles, and it was to serve also as a testing ground for collaborative procurement of these items by both Army and Navy.
To provide a desert uniform with enhanced camouflage, the Army, in October 1990, adopted a new three-color desert camouflage pattern BDU to replace the six-color pattern.
The pattern was originally designed in 1948 at the Engineer Research and Development Center. Subsequently, it was translated to fabric under guidance by the QM Research and Development Command and type classified in 1966 as the US Army 1948 camouflage pattern, also directed toward minimizing sniper scope detection.
A 60-percent expansion of the 1948 4-color pattern was adopted for the Woodland pattern in order to extend the range of camouflage effectiveness as far toward 350 meters as possible.
