Reducing the personal signature of the warfighter, while simultaneously allowing him to"see, breathe and hear"is critical to mission success. Methods of concealment that are suitable for the body do not adequately mask the face without hindering the ability to"see, breathe and hear". To address the need for reducing signature in the Visible and NIR/SWIR region Performance Indicator, LLC (PI) proposes to develop materials with narrow band absorption spectrum such that absorption is essentially confined to the region wherein the signature is required to be tailored to reduce detection threat. To address the need for reducing the facial signature in the LWIR region, such signature being generated due to higher facial temperature, PI proposes to develop signature reducing solutions by using materials that acts as a thermal buffer. This thermal buffer can be created by using phase change materials
