Abstract : The paper deals with recognition and use of natural and man-made objects for protection against bullets, fragments, and blast, including nuclear fire and CBR agents; with concealment against enemy ground and aerial observation through use of natural and artificial camouflage, including the camouflage of exposed skin surfaces; and with the maintenance of light, noise, and odor discipline. Use of stealthy movement techniques; reaction to enemy flares or other illumination; action against enemy ground radar, infrared illumination, and image-intensification devices; and the use of weather and battle noises to cover movement are included.
