Paper Abstract

The current lightweight camouflage screening system (LOSS) used by U.S. military forces consists of a color coated polymer containing radar scattering dipoles (flat stock material) attached to a fish-net type substrate. As a general purpose radar scattering camouflage system, the screen is designed to be reflective enough to reduce the radar return from a covered target, but not so reflective that the screen itself becomes a significant target. The screen is produced to specified transmission parameters. In order to evaluate the effectiveness of the production specifications, screens with different transmission properties were compared using tactical and instrumentation radar systems.
