Abstract
MRT target visibility is affected by the relative phase between the target location and the sampling lattice of thermal imaging systems. Undersampled systems such as staring arrays are particularly susceptible to phasing effects. For input spatial frequencies which range from 0.6 to 0.9 times the Nyquist frequency, bar fidelity is lost and the MRT is increased at these spatial frequencies. In apparent contradiction to Nyquist theory, it is possible to perceive MRT targets whose spatial frequencies are between Nyquist and 1.1 times Nyquist frequency.
