This experiment relates three forms of resolution as predictors of recognition and identification of objects that could be of interest in a military photo-reconaissance situation. Of the three forms of resolution, two are based on existing types of resolution target currently used for assesment purposes and the third, being evaluated under this experiment, is based on a Block Letter (alphanumeric) target. The results and conclusions of this experiment will show that at a confidence of 90%, the Block Letter target provides a significantly better resolution value for the prediction of recognition and identification of the type of objects used in this experiment.
