iron stream rolling, darling: dressed in high-tech digital camouflage “look” of the equipment one by one square, the new Chinese grand military parade on the 60th anniversary of the mighty and majestic passing through Tiananmen Square to become the worldwide attention a unique beautiful scenery. From the founding ceremony to the parade, I read the equipment by the Army to complete the appearance of color from the “International” brand, dark green finish, the traditional digital camouflage fatigues to several big leap. Technical experts from the military camouflage camouflage successfully developed new digital technology has not only achieved the organized, large-volume, multi-family type of main battle equipment, digital camouflage applications, but also in the forefront of automation and other fields have reached the international advanced level, by highly of the industry at home and abroad. Camouflage, digital camouflage, and its military worth? Strategic How? Here is the dialogue with the reporter to come and make encouraging innovation of an assembly engineering specialists of the Institute.
soldiers of deception “is to seek wisdom on the”
Reporters: strategic camouflage, has always attached great importance to national military commander of a show-shaped with a prudent high-level military art, especially in today’s high-tech information confrontation is particularly important. From the level of technology to talk about its history and the world, the camouflage technology development?
Jian-Xun Liu (Senior Engineer): in practice for thousands of years of war, military strategists continue to be the use of camouflage and sublimation. Today, camouflage technology has become a national strategy on behalf of an important indicator of the level of camouflage techniques.
Jiang Xiaojun (senior engineer): You can say that since the humanity of war since the camouflage will be followed there. However, limited by technical reasons, extensive use of camouflage or really get started in the 20th century. Two world wars, military strategists realized that camouflage the important national role, and began extensive use of camouflage in war means to protect military bases and an important strategic goal, camouflage means to have begun by the original use of natural development to use the equipment handy camouflage nets, corner reflectors and other standard equipment, and there has been specializing in the engineering troops disguised action. Modern technology research and application of camouflage has been a landmark development.
Jian-Xun Liu: From the military sense, the battle because the application of camouflage techniques can greatly enhance the ability of camouflage and concealment, their remaining combat forces can be effectively protected. At first, like the British “male” tank has been used brown, brown and green camouflage to achieve three-color visible light, so far in the UK Bloomington Tank Museum is also able to see; the German Army also used the three colors of “Lights and Shadows,” the camouflage, their experience and ideas on the future development of countries in camouflage technology has played an important role. Camouflage was the rapid development of new technologies, Europe and the United States in almost all kinds of weapons are widely used on various types of camouflage, until the early 1980s, has been the first to bring standardized three-color camouflage deformation and large-scale applications, the combat and security forces to achieve a great leap.
steganography “soldiers to fraud up”
Reporters: information warfare operations under conditions of war will often show the so-called “one-way transparency ‘, full , great depth, multi-level, high-performance three-dimensional surveillance system will greatly improve the ability to obtain and the level of battlefield intelligence, and strategic goals once they are discovered, means that the war could be destroyed at any time, in this situation, the camouflage of this battle “Magic” how to play its role?
Tianqi Xiang (Senior Engineer): magic goes, said ridge. Today, digital camouflage technique can be said to dominate. The so-called digital camouflage, is the integrated use of advanced technology in today’s new generation of camouflage, it is to the human experience of the psychological characteristics of the visual graphics, digital imaging matrix properties, and human visual characteristics of target identification as a design basis, the background can color, texture and detail level information such as height of the simulation, and digital “dot” in the form presented in the target surface, so called dot or pixel digital camouflage camouflage.
Jiang Xiaojun: digital camouflage to effectively implement the information against the modern battlefield, especially against high-resolution optical reconnaissance Aerospace, which represents the current camouflage techniques important development. Currently, the United States, Canada, the Netherlands and many countries have mastered the new technology of digital camouflage, and their use is accelerating the digital camouflage clothing and tanks, aircraft, ships and other important goals to expand.
really show off hidden “seek to re-surgery”
Reporters: camouflage military strategists really show off hidden an important means of camouflage technique compared with traditional What are the advantages over digital camouflage and features?
Sheffield (Senior Engineer): The development and application of traditional camouflage has been nearly a century, its practical application is based on different target and background characteristics, to use protection, imitation and deformation of three kinds of camouflage way, due to the activities of regional arms constantly changing, commonly used deformation camouflage. These traditional camouflage mainly by large irregular spots or stripes composed of spots larger, the edges smooth, strong visual differentiation, mainly for combat at close range, low-resolution photographic reconnaissance, night vision and near infrared photographic reconnaissance. However, with modern reconnaissance detection technology, an unprecedented development, high-tech air reconnaissance or satellite image resolution is sufficient to distinguish between things like the size of 0.1 m, so the traditional camouflage has been difficult to deal with high-resolution aerial and satellite imaging surveillance. Therefore, digital camouflage new technology emerged.
Tian Qixiang: digital camouflage spots intertwined, and home, within the packets can be external, it is highly three-dimensional and concavity to simulate the natural background is more vivid and precise, easy to make the viewer have a “visual illusion “and therefore at different detection distances, under different environmental backgrounds have good camouflage effect. From a close look, digital camouflage pattern with the jungle or desert in the background leaves, gravel or sand and other irregular contours of integration, making it difficult from the “background” to extract these specific “graphic”; from a distance view, digital camouflage pattern designed to achieve the requirements of the traditional large deformation effects of spots, spots of different colors can produce color mixing space, easy to blend with the surrounding background, so that enemy air reconnaissance and satellite imagery, authenticity is hard to determine.
strategic camouflage and bright
Reporters: surveillance detection and camouflage is always the “spear and shield” against the relationship, the future of camouflage in the information war combat effectiveness and strategic confrontation How? The development will show what the new trend?
room Xu Min (researcher): the future of information warfare, the growing ability to obtain information battlefield, more and more sophisticated detection methods, so that means and equipment began to camouflage multi-functional, universal , series, and intelligent direction to accelerate the development of the system and showing both sides against the system, an integrated combat system with the system. According to the statistics of foreign military scholars, in modern warfare when the integrated use of two kinds of cheating methods, the success rate of 88%, while the integrated use of three or more deceptive methods, the success rate can be close to 100%. Therefore, the development of future strategy can be described as camouflage fame.
Wang Yin Long (senior engineer): Today, the world’s high-tech reconnaissance and reconnaissance platforms to detect also showing a dimension of all, the ability to distinguish fine, reconnaissance and combat integration and other important trends. It can be anticipated, camouflage will be the next band with the expansion of surveillance, the ability to distinguish improved gradually to the infrared camouflage, camouflage color, and adaptive camouflage and rapid development of several key directions.
the future battlefield, a variety of thermal infrared imaging surveillance equipment will be widely used, it must have required to camouflage against the thermal infrared imaging reconnaissance capabilities; under conditions of information warfare operations remotely possible cross-mobile would require the camouflage must have with the activity area, season, weather changes and other changes in a timely manner the ability to achieve full-time domain with the highly dynamic context of integration, so the color camouflage prospects; and adaptive camouflage, mainly for complex electromagnetic environment , because the future is facing the threat of surveillance to detect fast-changing requirements of camouflage to realize “the same color spectrum” design concept, to better fight hyperspectral imaging, laser detection, reconnaissance and other means of detecting polarization.
room Xumin: Currently, digital camouflage on weapons and equipment to countries in terms of applied research are also new areas, can be described in the ascendant. The equipment in the military parade on the application of new technology, with its excellent camouflage performance, elegant design, gives a strong sense of visual impact, a good demonstration of China’s defense modernization to achieve leapfrog development of the new style.
