Paper Abstract

A technique for modeling the effect of illuminator partial coherence on target imaging and optical tracking is discussed. Computer simulations of imaging and tracking through atmospheric turbulence show that it is important to account for illuminator partial coherence if one is interested in accurately modeling the effects of turbulence on optical tracking.
