Digital Image Processing as AN Aid to Camouflage Design and Assessment
Available from UMI in association with The British Library. Camouflage is analysed using the concept of visual texture. The second-order statistics of monochrome natural scenes are investigated using the Fractal model of texture as an initial hypothesis. The sensitivity of the human visual system to differences in fractal dimension is determined. A more realistic, but simple, model is proposed and used to synthesize natural textures. The work is extended to multi-spectral textures using the Eigenvector orthogonal transformation. Colour camouflage textures are generated for a range of natural background textures and assessed using a subjective trial. From the data obtained during the trial the general suitability of the method for producing multi-spectral camouflage is examined.
