Paper Abstract

A method of calculating numerically the optical transfer function appropriate to any type of image motion and vibration, including random ones, has been developed. Here the numerical calculation method is compared to experimental measurement, and the close agreement justifies implementation in image restoration for blurring deriving from any type of image motion. In addition, statistics regarding limiting resolution as a function of relative exposure time for low frequency vibrations involving random blur are described. This can be implemented in target acquisition probabilities.
