Abstract
This report was produced for NATO Task Group SCI-095 “Enhancement of Camouflage Assessment Techniques”. It describes the analysis of data collected from different types of camouflage trials, including photosimulation experiments, live camouflage trials and video simulation. Since visual camouflage data are often statistically censored, the report offers procedures on how to adjust the raw observations, depending on the type of analysis to be carried out. Recommended methods for calculating descriptive statistics, including the median and first percentile of a dataset, are provided. Statistical tests for different experimental designs are presented with examples. The two main characteristics that determine which statistical test is most appropriate are the number of camouflage treatments being evaluated and whether the observations are independent or paired. For each case, the report recommends a statistical tool and gives an example of its use. Finally, the General Linear Model as an analysis tool for camouflage data is discussed and two examples are given.
