Abstract: The article deals with results of a Project - acronym ADAPTIV which is Czech Defence Research Project. This Project solve adaptive camouflage by the Computer - Aided Mimicry (CAM) as Project terminal solution. Perceptive interface between recipient and camouflaged object is visualized by means of textile modular screens. Screen/s special light semi-permeability enables front/ back projection with nearly identical light parameters. Information permeability, towards illusion creation, is sure controlled by the camouflage provider by means sophisticated and mastered illusion with perfect scenarios. ADAPTIV/s financial possibilities and COTS principle have asked special definition of feasibility conditions, especially recipient/s space position. All participants of camouflage Use Case have pregnant scenario roles as the technologic system components, domains, actors, agents and art mediators. Project conclusions will be introduced especially in military and security environments in live PowerPoint presentation at the Conference CIMMACS '11.
