Modern camouflague is easily beaten by using ultraviolet sensors - video

A simple way to negate the ability of modern camouflage to hide its wearers is to place a UV bypass filter over the lenses. The problem is not new. What has changed is that digital technology permits everyone to see under the curtain.

The U.S. Army has been instructing their soldiers for many years about the dangers of UV sensors and to camouflage against such sensors. Since the U.S. Army FM is online, and otherwise readily available, as are relevant training manuals, it should be assumed that any enemy has read those.

NATO has mandated UV camouflage paint on military vehicles operating in Arctic conditions for decades. Patents for UV camouflage nets date back to the 1960's.

This video depicts a man dressed in U.S. Army UCP camouflage jacket and pants, and an OCP boonie, advancing through undergrowth.

The first images are in visible light, then an ultraviolet bandpass filter is dropped over the lens, allowing only ultraviolet light to pass. The video was edited only for length.
