  • Focal plane wideband infrared digital polarization imagery will be compared with visual wideband focal plane digital imagery of a camouflaged C-130 aircraft to show the extreme enhancement possible using digital imagery. The experimental observations will be compared with theoretical calculations and modeling results of both specular and shadowed areas. The relationship of both the specular and the shadowed areas to surface structure, orientation, specularity, roughness, shadowing, orientation… CONTINUE READING
