Summary/Abstract: Enemy camouflage, concealment and deception (CCD) degrades the effectiveness of friendly intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and target acquisition(ISTAR) capabilities. By using CCD means and techniques the enemy disrupt friendly efforts to assess enemy’s operational patterns, functions, and capabilities. Therefore, CCD enhances enemy survivability by reducing friendly's ability to detect, identify, and engage enemy elements. However, using advanced RS software, geospatial information systems, imagery and different GEOINT techniques, CCD detection can be made possible, hence the denial of enemy CCD efforts.
