Algorithms are described for ordering, averaging, and spike adaptive non-linear gamma circumvention. These algorithms take advantage of the nominally matched-insignal and position-correlated samples from the detectors of the time delay integration (TDI) chain of a scanning sensor. The effects of averaging and median (ordering) filtering on Gaussian noise and Gaussian plus gamma noise are presented along with the requirement for additional post filtering for these algorithms. Monte Carlo techniques are used to predict the performance of the various circumvention algorithms for both endoatmospheric and exoatmospheric applications. Finally, selected gamma circumvention algorithms suitable for on-focal plane mechanization using large scale integration (LSI) technology are presented.
