Abstract
We present some results of laboratory experiments on the image transfer of small-size objects emitting a radiation in a pulsed mode. The experiments involved viewing such objects through a dispersion layer in the near-IR range. A four-tie mira has been used as a test-object. The spatiotemporal statistics of photocounts, signal-to-noise ratio, and the average image contrast were analyzed in the image plane of the optical imaging system used. Dependences of these parameters on the optical density of a scattering medium are found. The feasibility of recognizing the objects equivalent to the above mentioned mira is estimated for the maximum values of the medium optical thickness realized in the optical experiments conducted.
