Natural Background of Electro-Optical Signatures

Measurement of electro-optical signatures of natural backgrounds is part of solution of CZE research project for general purpose camouflage pattern of BDUs. This project will solve new patterns effective in VIS and NIR part of electromagnetic spectrum and includes evaluation of current status within CZE and on the world as well, proposals of new patterns, lab and field measurements with lab samples and field BDUs, proposals of CZE military standards etc. The results from the project can be used by the CZE Ministry of Defence and armed forces for new decisions and preparation for producing of new BDUs.
