Paper Abstract

Self-references holographic imaging techniques with nonuniform illumination coding can be used for high resolution imaging and tracking of complex targets from either ground-based or space-based platforms. Various image reconstruction algorithms were discussed in the context of a self-reference holographic imaging technique which we had recently proposed. In this paper the image reconstructions are considered in the presence of signal generated shot noise and detector noise, taking into account the finite resolution of the detector array. Examples of performance of linear and nonlinear image reconstruction algorithms are presented. This discussion includes the consideration of the design and selection of illuminating wavefronts and provides a framework for evaluation of system requirements and its limitations.
