Paper Abstract

Two techniques for the computer simulation of optical and electro-optical systems have evolved: direct convolution and Fourier. These two techniques were examined from the viewpoints of computer efficiency, accuracy and ease of implementation for the purpose of developing a large scale electro-optical simulation. With the increase of the size of simulations, the trend has been toward Fourier techniques because of their computer efficiency. It was found, however, that, for the image and system being simulated, the direct convolution technique offered a significant run-time advantage. The results of that study and the development of the simulation are described.
