Abstract:

This report presents the more significant and complete results to date on a program of theoretical study related to unconventional imagery and techniques for suppression of atmospheric turbulence effects on image quality. The objective of this work has been to develop an understanding and quantitative theory of those aspects of propagation through atmospheric turbulence that would limit the performance of unconventional imagery techniques, and to develop a basis for quantifying the effective magnitude of atmospheric turbulence. Results of an analysis of the isoplanatic aspects of predetection compensation imagery are given.
