Your argument is thoroughly illogical.
I've included a photo taken in both natural and infrared light. The whole point of using filters to screen out various wavelengths is that colours show up differently, but depth remains constant. So you can simply subtract the parts that change while keeping the parts that don't, leaving contours only - basically a depth map - in that way, you can remove the camouflage.
Light, shade, reflection etc can be manipulated in any photo, except it consists of a single colour (like white or black) only.
Filters can be electronic, code, bog standard gel filters etc. Instead of tasteless James Bond jokes, you should at least read up on subjects you aren't familiar with.

I am perfectly aware of what filters do. The point of camouflage however is to make it harder to differentiate between real contours and painted ones, hence the complex structure they use. The point being; from a cameras perspective and on the resulting picture, the real curvature of the surfaces are harder to distinguish within the painted pattern. Using fancy filters will not help that. Your provided picture isn't really relevant here, as we aren't talking about masking water and nature. Long point short, your proposed IR filters will not magically make the camo pattern disappear.
I never said infrared filters would make the camo disappear, rather I provided the steps to follow to remove the camo, leaving a depth map behind. You have not addressed any of those steps, which makes it impossible for me to know exactly what you disagree with.
The pic I provided was to prove that colours show up differently depending on wavelength, it certainly wasn't to show water and nature. Every material absorbs and reflects light in its own unique way.
I also provided three methods by which one could get the job done.
Perhaps you have not understood what I posted and might need to go over my posts again.
If you are still doubtful, you can enquire about the three methods I outlined with an advanced coder (who is competent in image processing) to get an independent opinion.
Merc have since released their car without camo.
