A device for rapid removal/reinstallation of a back of a seat of a vehicle, the back being attached, by at least one first strap, to a ceiling. The device includes a hanging intermediary structure and a fixed structure integral with the ceiling and retaining the structure in the use position of the seat, in which it has been brought with an upward movement, and locking the structure in the use position or unlocking it such that it is moved away from the ceiling to release the tension exerted by the first strap and allow the structure to be disengaged from the retaining unit. The back can thus be removed or reinstalled without any action on the tension setting of the strap.

The present invention relates to a device (9) for rapid removal/replacement of a back (2) of a seat (1) of a vehicle, the back (2) being attached by at least one first strap (5) to a ceiling (8). The device (9) comprises an intermediate suspension structure (11) and a structure (10) rigidly attached of the ceiling (8) and comprising means for retaining the structure (11) in the utilization position of the seat (1), into which the structure has been brought by a raising movement, and means for locking the structure (11) in said utilization position or releasing it so that it can be moved away from the ceiling (8) to release the tension exerted by the first strap and to allow the structure (11) to be disengaged from the retention means. The back (2) can thus be removed and replaced without changing the tension setting of said strap (5).

An adaptive masking method for an element in a field of operations. According to this method, at least one cover allowing to cover the element is implemented, the cover carrying at least one image generator network connected to an image synthesizer coupled to a camera. According to this method, the camera is positioned so as to cover both a portion of a background of the element and the entire cover, the image synthesizer controlling the at least one image generator network so as to minimize the contrast and optionally the frequency deviation between the background and the cover. The device implementing such a method is described.
