An application of image analysis techniques for construction of a field-portable, computer- based system for evaluation of personal camouflage is presented. The scope of evaluation is limited to target acquisition reduction performance of camouflaged uniforms against the unaided human visual system. Evaluation of camouflage with this system is based on a set of features for each component in the CIELAB color space that includes statistical texture measures, and first-order descriptive statistics over specified regions in a scene as functions of orientation and scale. The approaches taken for data acquisition, reduction, processing and evaluation are presented. An analysis of camouflage data relative to a human panel test is also presented.
