Abstract

A case of complex spurious resolution in airborne photographic resolution tests is studied and explained by establishment of the exposure distribution in the motion-blurred image of a triple-strip white-on-black resolution target. The conditions in black-on-white targets and in targets with n strips are also discussed.
