Paper Abstract

Both the theoretical and the experimental problems of backgrounds are examined. The authors show why the current definitions of correlation length should be used with care, with attention paid to the intensity histogram of a scene. Different effects of the sub-pixel features in a measured scene on the clutter for imaging and scanning systems are also explained. The two- dimensional polarization of a scene is measured and found to compare favorably with the theoretical predictions. Finally, the authors show how to simulate backgrounds whose power spectrum is given, together with constraints on the image proper. This is achieved by iteratively transforming between the image plane and its Fourier conjugate, while imposing the appropriate constraints in both planes.
