DETERMINATION OF DETECTION RANGE OF MONOTONE AND CAMOUFLAGE PATTERNED FIVE-SOLDIER CREW TENTS BY GROUND OBSERVERS
ARMY BELVOIR RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT AND ENGINEERING CENTER FORT BELVOIR VA
Pagination or Media Count:
Field evaluations have determined that camouflage patterns reduce detectability ranges for uniforms and vehicles in woodland environments. This study identified the effects of three patterned and two monotoned Five-Soldier Crew Tents using detection ranges and number of false detections as determined by ground observers. The distance of correct detections were recorded along with the number of false detections. An analysis of variance for the detection ranges and number of false detections was performed. The Duncans Multiple Range Test was used to determine significant differences a 0.05 in groups of tents. From this data, it was determined that the three patterned Five-Soldier Crew Tents were more difficult to detect than the two monotone tents.
