This paper discusses different methods for formulating specifications for thermal camouflage materials or systems. The discussed methods range from full-scale realistic combat-like military exercises to laboratory measurements of material properties and computer simulations. As an introduction to the discussion, a brief overview of the physical processes governing the temperature of outdoors surfaces is given as well as a basic introduction to the formalism and methods used in thermal imaging systems performance prediction.
