A plenoptic sensor can be used to improve the image formation process in a conventional camera. Through this process, the conventional image is mapped to an image array that represents the image’s photon paths along different angular directions. Therefore, it can be used to resolve imaging problems where severe distortion happens. Especially for objects observed at moderate range (10m to 200m) through turbulent water, the image can be twisted to be entirely unrecognizable and correction algorithms need to be applied. In this paper, we show how to use a plenoptic sensor to recover an unknown object in line of sight through significant water turbulence distortion. In general, our approach can be applied to both atmospheric turbulence and water turbulence conditions.
