Intelligent design of gradual disruptive pattern painting and comparison of camouflage effectiveness

To improve the camouflage effectiveness of pattern painting, based on gradual coloration, a new disruptive pattern painting is put forward. There are different varieties of background vegetation and physiognomy in natural, especially in coloration. Therefore, the coloration in pattern painting should be various and gradual change between different colors. The natural gradual changing coloration scheme has the best camouflage effectiveness in theory, which cannot be painted in the surface of some targets. Different coloration schemes are intelligently designed to improve pattern background matching effectiveness, and also be convenient in construction. A test pattern painting is designed based on different coloration schemes. The results show that the proposed scheme can be used to improve background matching effectiveness, and the proper coloration scheme is selected.
