Abstract
Not Available Surfaces which can be actively adjusted to provide color matching with a changing background would be extremely valuable for military camouflage operations, particularly in hiding military surveillance equipment, weapons systems, and for personal soldier applications. In this regard, electrochromic materials have been demonstrated which exhibit deep modulation over a broad region of the electromagnetic spectrum. We propose here a new concept in electrochromic coatings for producing uniform, flexible, long cycle life, environmentally robust electrochromic cells for surface application. The innovation is based on using flexible polymeric materials for the components of the charge balanced electrochromic cell elements. The electrochromic layers will comprise organic, inorganic and mixed materials prepared by controlled surface coating processes. The overall objective of Phase I is to determine the feasibility of electrochromic materials and electrochemical pixel cell configurations for providing a three color variable camouflage element. The work will encompass a survey of new multicolor electrochromic polymers developed at EIC Laboratories and, through a subcontract, by the Reynolds group at the University of Florida. Phase II entails scale-up of flexible pixel elements to provide fully matrix addressed, environmentally robust appliques for spatially varying active signature control. BENEFITS: The major products of electrochromic technology include: information display
