The Possibilities of Hyperspectral Imaging for Improving of Validation of Superficial Quality of Spectral Features of Camouflage Surfaces
The paper deals with description of upcoming method of Hyperspectral camera utilization for determination of superficial quality of spectral features of camouflage surfaces. Camouflage, the art of blending, is the endeavor to match the spectral signatures of the subject with the spectral signature of its background. The validation of spectral requirements on the camouflage materials (e.g. prints) in laboratory conditions is the task that plays the significant role of getting the better camouflage. Hyperspectral techniques described in this paper could improve the quality of control mechanism by changing the concept of spectral defects identification on the camouflage prints and thereby it increases the effectiveness of camouflage. The measurement of camouflage prints with HS camera for determination the superficial quality of spectral features of camouflage surfaces is designed as an extension of actual spot measurement that is applied in the current condition of ACR.
