Paper Abstract

The identification of spatial covariance matrices is required in adaptive optics in order to perform tomographic reconstruction with optimal estimators. We use on-sky measurements from Canary, the on-sky demonstrator of MOAO for EAGLE, to study the statistical convergence of the spatial covariance of Shack-Hartmann measurements. We describe a new, faster, analytical approximated model for this spatial covariance, and finally bring into light a new procedure for model identification, reducing the tomographic error. We quantify the gain brought by the new approach on both numerical simulations and on-sky data.
