ABSTRACT

Due to the popularity of military fashion in recent years, a myriad of clothes display camouflage patterns. In military uniforms, camouflage patterns are adopted to perform their original function of not being exposed to the enemy. This study is about data standardization methods and assessment standard setting for the assessment of camouflage patterns in environmental images using photo simulations. First, each pattern was standardized and environmental images were standardized using four selected standards to standardize assessment data. Second, the representative color values of camouflage patterns and environmental images were extracted and camouflage and environment color analysis standards were established using distribution and density analysis to set assessment standards. The visual “composition” of camouflage patterns was divided into four categories and “shape” into six categories, and the shape of camouflage environments were categorized into “trees, boulders, bushes, and fallen leaves.” Finally, photo simulation comparison images were created for camouflage assessment, and the camouflage patterns of the Korean and U.S. armies were compared and analyzed via survey. This study is significant in that it standardizes data and sets assessment standards to assess camouflage in terms of visual communications design, and assesses camouflage using photo simulations.
