Paper Abstract

Here we are presenting the basic theoretical consideration to measurement of turbulence characteristics from observations of the onboard a flying aircraft. The method allows to record the integral turbulence intensity and two components of wind velocity along the optical path. The variance of the jitter of astronomic images is a measured characteristic. This paper presents the basic theoretical equations, needed for the measurement of turbulence characteristics from observations of the jitter of astronomic images from onboard a flying aircraft. The method allows us to record the integral turbulence intensity along the optical path. The variance of the jitter of astronomic images is a measured characteristic. This characteristic is thoroughly studied and stable to measurement errors.
