Adaptative Camouflage for the Souldier II
The project aims to integrate several active and passive adaptation mechanisms into a textile-based soldier camouflage system. This system will address several wavelength bands, such as visual, infrared as well as radar. Military needs on sensing, fire power, mobility and endurance are considered. Optimization is achieved through both well-established and new methods to capture the adaptive properties. Military end users’ voice is a most important asset throughout the project.
- Adaptive camouflage for the soldier in a realistic, relevant operational scenario will be demonstrated;
- Demonstration will be made with a tailored textile appliance equipped with both active and passive adaptive camouflage features;
- Reduction in detection range and hence the increase in survivability will be assessed, using both well-established methods and new methods to capture the adaptive properties.
