Paper Abstract

Electro-optical panoramic cameras utilizing the Time Delay and Integration (T.D.I.) mode of operation for the extraction of information under conditions of extremely low apparent scene contrast are characterized by long exposure timas. As a result, the control of image motion to avoid the degrading effects of smear becomes of paramount importance. Starting from the general equations of image motion, several motion compensation techniques are examined and an approach is presented which permits a high degree of correction.
