Paper Abstract

Over the last four years, Essex Corporation has been developing an image reconstruction system (ImSynTM) for a variety of applications, including synthetic aperture radar, magnetic resonance imaging, and other sensors. Each of these formats encompasses its own set of requirements for image quality, image size, and throughput. The ImSyn system has been designed to provide image dynamic range of up to 100 dB, arbitrary image sizes, and throughputs of 30 images per second to satisfy the various requirements. Recent efforts to enhance the ImSyn breadboard version has required the development of modeling techniques to measure system performance and identify sources of error and artifacts. The modeling approach, application of the measurements to determine and improve system performance, and the resulting imagery achieved with the ImSyn breadboard are presented.
