The CAMEVAL-2002 Land Forces Signature Reduction (LFSR) trail was conducted at the Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Petawawa in June 2002. For the LFSR trial, 27 military vehicles (primarily Leopard C2 tanks and Coyote reconnaissance vehicles) sere deployed under forest canopy, along tree lines and in open field. A subset of the Leopards and Coyotes was deployed with a trail camouflage screen, another subset was covered with the current in-service camouflage, and a final subset was left uncovered. During the LFSR trial, Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) Ottawa and DRDC Valcartier acquired airborne and spaceborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery and airborne Hyperspectral Imagery (HSI) data over the trial sites, and conducted extensive calibration and ground truthing activities in support of these acquisitions. This report documents the SAR and HSI data acquisition, ground truthing and calibration activities completed during the trial, thereby providing the foundation for any future analyses that use these multi-sensor data. This report also describes the five DRDC Ottawa and DRDC Valcartier analyses that were planned at the time of the trial.
