After the war, starting on 27 Octoberan Admiralty committee met to determine who had priority for the invention of dazzle. Kerr was asked whether he thought Wilkinson had personally benefited from anything that he, Kerr, had written.
Kerr avoided the question, implying that he had not, and said "I make no claim to have invented the principle of parti-colouring, this principle was, of course, invented by nature". In the First World War, experiments were conducted on British aircraft such as the Royal Flying Corps ' Sopwith Camels to make their angle and direction difficult to judge for an enemy gunner.
The effect remained dubious, but was found to reduce the incidence of the planes being targeted by anti-aircraft gunners on their own side. Dazzle's effectiveness was highly uncertain at the time of the First World Warbut it was nonetheless adopted both in the UK and North America.
Inthe Admiralty analysed shipping losses, but was unable to draw clear conclusions. Dazzle ships had been attacked in 1. These comparisons could be taken to imply that submarine commanders did have more difficulty in deciding where a ship was heading and where to aim.
With hindsight, too many factors choice of colour scheme; size and speed of ships; tactics used had been varied for it to be possible to determine which factors were significant or which schemes worked best. The American data were analysed by Harold Van Buskirk in About 1, ships were painted in dazzle between 1 March and the end of the war on 11 November that year. Among American merchantmen 2, tons and over, 78 uncamouflaged ships were sunk, and only 18 camouflaged ships; out of these 18, 11 were sunk by torpedoes, 4 in collisions and 3 by mines.
No US Navy ships all camouflaged were sunk in the period. However effective dazzle camouflage may have been in World War I, it became less useful as rangefinders and especially aircraft became more advanced, and, by the time it was put to use again in World War IIradar further reduced its effectiveness. However, it may still have confounded enemy submarines. In the Royal Navydazzle paint schemes reappeared in January These were unofficial, and competitions were often held between ships for the best camouflage patterns.
The Royal Navy's Camouflage Department came up with a scheme devised by a young naval officer, Peter Scotta wildlife artist, which were developed into the Western Approaches Schemes.
The United States Navy implemented a camouflage painting program in World War IIand applied it to many ship classes, from patrol craft and auxiliaries to battleships and some Essex -class aircraft carriers. The designs known as Measures, Dazzle - Shotgun Rationale - Roller Coaster (CD, each identified with a number were not arbitrary, but were standardised in a process which involved a planning stage, then a review, and then fleet-wide implementation.
Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine first used camouflage in the Norwegian campaign. A wide range of patterns were authorised, but most commonly black and white diagonal stripes were used. Most patterns were designed to hide ships in harbour or near the coast; they Dazzle - Shotgun Rationale - Roller Coaster (CD often painted over with plain grey when operating in the Atlantic. Inthe US Navy conducted experiments with dazzle-type camouflage for aircraft.
The abstract patterns in dazzle camouflage inspired artists including Picasso. With characteristic hyperbole he claimed credit for camouflage experiments, which seemed to him a quintessentially Cubist technique. In Canada, Arthur Lismer used dazzle ships in some of his wartime compositions. Inthe art of camouflage, including the evolution of dazzle, was featured as the theme for a show at the Imperial War Museum. Two American ships in dazzle camouflage, painted by Burnell Poole Dazzle-ships in Drydock at Liverpoolby Edward Wadsworth In civilian life, patterns reminiscent of dazzle camouflage are sometimes used to mask a test car during trials.
The designer Adam Harvey Dazzle - Shotgun Rationale - Roller Coaster (CD similarly proposed a form of camouflage reminiscent of dazzle for personal camouflage from face-detection technology, which he calls computer vision dazzle. Its intention is to block detection by facial recognition technologies such as DeepFace "by creating an 'anti-face'". The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has used dazzle patterns on its fleet since From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Not to be confused with Motion dazzle. Further information: Camoufleurs. Dazzle was a method to produce an effect by paint in such a way that all accepted forms of a ship are broken up by masses of strongly contrasted colour, consequently making it a Album) of difficulty for a submarine to decide on the exact course of the vessel to be attacked.
