Paper Abstract

Propagation of electro-optical signals through a turbulent medium such as the atmosphere or the boundary/shear layer around an aircraft or a missile, causes image degradation. This paper examines the characteristics of such aero-optical degradation, including blur and strehl distribution. In particular, the effect of using different turbulence correlation approximations is analyzed.
