Study on Digital Camouflage Tent Cloth and its Application with Pigment Printing


Article Preview

Based on camouflage performance of military tents, camouflage pigments with four colors are chosen. In order to obtain the good camouflage effect, the digital camouflage pattern is designed as well as based on basic features including main colors and texture of the target background. The camouflage pattern is printed on tent cloths with the pigments using rotary screen printing. The tent made from the tent cloth is located in the typical target background. Finally the camouflage effect of the tent is evaluated. The experimental result shows that, the digital camouflage tent is much easier to blend with the natural background, and achieves a good effect of the optical camouflage.
