Paper Abstract

We present results from simulation of an Optical Synthetic Aperture radar system(OpSAR) using a wave optics propagation model. This model allows phase and amplitude errors to be introduced anywhere along the propagation path. We show the effects of uncompensated phase errors caused by atmospheric turbulence. We demonstrate azimuth phase error compensation using a sharpness metric based on entropy minization.
