8 May 2018 Case-study analysis of apparent color for camouflage fabrics
Author Affiliations +
Advanced combat uniforms with multiple tonal (blended) colors and highly detailed camouflage patterning require additional test methodologies for color evaluation. Here the apparent color, which is the combination of all visible wavelengths (380-700 nm) of light reflected from large (≥1m2) fabric sample sizes for a given standoff distance (25-100 ft), is evaluated as a potential test method. Camouflage patterns lose resolution with increasing standoff distance, and eventually all colors within the pattern appear monotone (the “apparent color” of the camouflage pattern). This paper presents a case-study analysis using apparent color for the purpose of model development relevant to evaluating color in camouflage fabrics.
