Abstract:

In order to obtain the cross-scan position of an optical target, more than one scanning detector is used. As expected, the cross-scan position estimation performance degrades when two nearby optical targets interfere with each other. Theoretical bounds on the two-dimensional parameter estimation performance for two closely spaced optical targets are found. Two particular classes of scanning detector arrays, namely, the crows foot and the brickwall or mosaic patterns, are considered. Author
