Air Force Research Labs, Sensors Directorate has constructed and tested a coherent imaging system. The Laservision coherent imaging system resolution goals are compatible with long-range target identification based on the image characteristics of the target. The system received reflected coherent light from the laser using an optical telescope, which fed a CCD detector to collect the scene intensity. Registration of individual images remains a significant problem in the generation of accurate images collected using coherent imaging systems. An investigation of the performance of an image registration algorithm was conducted using data collected from a coherent optical imaging. The algorithm under study was implemented on a general-purpose computer running the MATLAB simulation environment. This paper documents the performance of the proposed technique compared to that of the cross-correlation algorithm.
