Abstract:

The long-term goal of this project is to derive a general and comprehensive algorithm to calculate a scalar image metric which will help quantify the performance of emerging laser-based imaging systems in the highly variable optical littoral environment. After validation, this image metric will then be used to assist in mission planning by providing up-to-date maps of the expected system performance for each of these imaging platforms along littoral routes and areas of interest to the Navy.
