This virtual event, the second such conference, the first being in 2018, will be held over two consecutive afternoons will provide a forum for the exchange of information, knowledge and state-of-the-art practice in camouflage science and technology.
The scope follows three main themes:
- Materials science & technology for camouflage
To engage with scientists from fields including materials, optics, biology and cognition.
- Camouflage engineering & systems
To engage with developers, manufactures & suppliers of camouflage systems, including activities to model and evaluate camouflage performance.
- Holistic camouflage including deception
To review all aspects of camouflage and signature management systems, from the basic science to the end-user in the field.
Hiding in plain sight
Defining what modern camouflage means in 2020 – and citing its evolution – members of the IOM3 Defence, Safety and Security Committee outline the properties and performance of materials that help soldiers avoid detection and ultimately protect their lives.
