This investigation explored differences in armored vehicle recognition training by supplying 2D images of 3D models at different views. Additionally, the relationship between the spatial construct of closure speed and target identification was examined. Participants were administered three tests of closure speed, and then trained on armored vehicle recognition with 2D images of 3D models at more angles than typically given with line drawings supplied to soldiers. Results did not show a significant difference between the training conditions on a tank recognition task. Examining the relationship between performance on closure speed tests and tank recognition performance scores showed mixed results. Implications of this research may include considerations for selection and training of future unmanned vehicle operators.
