Paper Abstract

Restoration of thermal images distorted by the atmosphere, received on a focal plane array (FPA) thermal imaging system, is presented. The restoration method is based upon atmospheric modulation transfer function (MTF) analysis. Using turbulence and aerosol MTF prediction models atmospheric distortions and image corruption are modeled. Preliminary restoration results indicate significant improvement in image quality.
