Abstract:

Infrared IR images in the 3 to 5 and 8 to 12 micron band were taken of soldiers wearing various camouflaged uniforms. The soldiers wearing the uniforms were either standing crouched or prone. The images were presented to 20 observers in the TARDEC Visual Perception Laboratory VPL and their detection decisions analyzed. Results were analyzed to determine which uniforms offered the most protection to a threat sensor. The laboratory results were modeled using the Fuzzy Logic Approach FLA with a resulting correlation of 0.9.
