Paper Abstract

Propagation of optical signals through a turbulent medium such as the atmosphere or the boundary layer around a missile or an aircraft, causes image degradation. This paper examines the characteristics of such degradation, including log-amplitude variance, phase variance, attenuation, and blur. In particular, the effect of using different turbulence spectral/correlation functions and the dependence on various characteristic length scales, are analyzed.
