Paper Abstract

In this paper several systematic and random filter plane errors are related through a single parameter that describes the amount of phase mismatch. A model of peak-to-noise ratio (PNR) is also presented that describes the combined effects of random and systematic errors. This expression contains the products of two functions, one that depends only on systematic, the other on random, phase mismatch. PNR is also a function of the number of pixels in the filter plane modulator and a normalized moment the amplitude of the image spectrum. The model is useful for developing phase error budgets for correlation systems.
