Paper Abstract

Infrared 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 37 observers and their detection decisions analyzed. Results were analyzed to determine which uniforms offered the most protection to a threat sensor at various ranges. The perception laboratory results were modeled using the Fuzzy Logic Approach and the CAMAELEON model with a resulting Pearson correlation of 0.9.
