Abstract:

In the past, camouflage patterns have been designed subjectively by application of artistic principles and experience. Recently, analytical approaches have been attempted, based primarily on image analysis and pattern recognition theory. The purpose of this study was to investigate the applicability of recently available psychophysical data on the visual process to the design of camouflage patterns for personnel. The analysis deals with an effort to maximize camouflage effectiveness, considering mainly the variables of pattern size and color.
