Optonicus demonstrated in strong scintillation conditions a high-resolution, fast complex field sensor

Optonicus completed and experimentally demonstrated in strong scintillation conditions a high-resolution (256×256), fast (> 60 frame/sec) complex field sensor based on Multi-Aperture Phase Reconstruction (MAPR) technique. Developed under an HEL-JTO contract, the MAPR sensor is designed for operation in deep turbulence conditions and in presence of mechanical jitter.
