Treatment with UVRC

The rotating image to the left displays two U.S. Army ACU tops in the standard UCP (Universal Camouflage Pattern) against a backdrop of trees. The photos were taken in visible, near-infrared, and ultraviolet light. The uniform on the left has been treated with UVRC-A 7%. Both uniforms are readily apparent in visible light, and well-camouflaged in near-IR; however, only the UVRC-A 7% treated ACU is camouflaged in ultraviolet light.

Photos were taken at a distance of 25 meters with a 50mm lens.

Compare and contrast

The image to the left depicts the same two U.S. Army ACU's (FRACUs) as the top photo, but at the distance of 100 meters. At this distance, the uniform on the left, which was treated with UVRC-A 7% is invisible in the ultraviolet. Zoom to the center of each photo to see the ACUs, then, compare the visible and ultraviolet spectra by clicking the buttons below the image.

Half the Uniform

In the photo on the left the subject is wearing a U.S. Army ACU (FRACU) with the right side of the top and trousers - and the Multicam boonie hat - treated with UVRC-A 7%. The top image in visible light and the middle image in NIR light reflect the light as expected. However, the bottom image, in ultraviolet light, shows the wearer's left side as a bright image, while the treated right side blends with the background.
