Paper Abstract

A new concept is presented to determine the range of vision of objects in scattering media relied upon the idea of optimum image processing. A program package which realized this concept to calculate the limited range of detection and discrimination of underwater objects by any passive and active laser TV systems, including observation through a rough sea surface, is described. Some examples of vision range calculation when viewing in atmosphere and ocean using different systems from the human eye to pulsed range gating laser TV are given.
