Abstract:

This study has developed one camouflage pattern for the General Purpose GP medium and GP small tent which was submitted for field evaluation by MASSTER. Two additional patterns were developed which are worthy of further evaluation. An overcoloring formulation was developed which is compatible with the FWWMR Fire, water, weather and mildew resistant finish on the cotton fabric used for military tents. Field application techniques were developed for applying the patterns and the overcoloring compounds to the tents. Although the overcolorants developed are worthy of field evaluation they should not be considered a final product for mass production. Further studies are needed to reformulate the compound to minimize gloss, reduce cost, and improve its covering power and IR reflectance.
