Our company's name, the recursive acronym CAMELEON stands for
CAMouflage concepts and systems in the ELEctro-Optical/IR spectrum for Navy ships
A recursive acronym is an abbreviation which refers to the explanation of her meaning recursive to itself - here the camouflage, like the ability of a chameleon to change the colour fastest with danger or menace (mimicry).
On the contrary to mimesis, which stands for the ability that the chameleon tries to camouflage itself by the mimicry of objects from his surrounding area (e.g. branches and sheets) - here the deception.
We see our core competence in the conceptual design and the technical realisation of passive- and adaptive camouflage measures for ship's sides and superstructures (e.g. radome, SMART-L, S1850M - Thales/BAE) of naval vessels for the NATO naval forces, which are characterized by a high degree of camouflage effectiveness in the electro-optical/IR spectrum (NIR, SWIR, MWIR and LWIR).
