Paper Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the real-time compensation of air turbulence in imaging through long atmospheric paths. We propose the use of a reconfigurable hardware platform, specifically field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), to reduce costs and development time, as well as increase flexibility and reusability. We present the results of our acceleration efforts to date (40x speedup) and our strategy to achieve a real-time, atmospheric compensation solver for highdefinition video signals.
