Abstract The paper describes a methodology used for analyzing data generated in the natural environment and in real time based on proprietary computer program developed by the authors. Directions for further work geared towards determining the number of colors in camouflage. The ones which would ensure the highest level of camouflaging efficiency for a soldier’s uniform and for a given area were indicated. The necessity was demonstrated of conducting research aimed at developing a specific color palette for the purpose of perfecting camouflage patterns dedicated to a specific climatic- and geographical zone in which the object would not be distinguished from the background of the terrain.
