Paper Abstract

The problem of suppressing the effects of line-of-sight (LOS) jitter in staring mosaic sensors is approached from the viewpoint of both real time and postprocessing of the corrupted focal plane data. Fundamental limits on the joint observability of LOS motion and spatial scene gradients are established as a function of the level of sensor and background characterization information assumed to be available. It is shown that although separability cannot be assured in most cases of interest, the effects of jitter can be estimated and synchronously subtracted from focal plane data. Simulation results are presented which demonstrate signal to noise improvements in excess of a factor of ten.
