The effect of sampling, or aliasing, on target recognition performance (discriminating between armored tracked, armored wheeled, and soft wheeled classes of tactical vehicles) is investigated in this research. A recognition target set was processed with various levels of blur and aliasing. Integrated spurious response levels were set to 0, 0.3, 0.6, and 0.9. A perception experiment was conducted with U.S. Army soldiers at Ft. Benning, Georgia to determine the impact of blur and aliasing on recognition performance. The results are described in this paper.
