To obtain high resolution images from large aperture optical systems, it is well known that the optical path must be corrected before the image is recorded and the phase information essentially lost. This predetection compensation requires fast response, adaptive optical elements in order to correct for optical path errors introduced by a turbulent atmospheric path. Fundamental concepts and operation of a laboratory system for wide band real time atmospheric compensation is discussed. The RTAC system operates closed-loop and automatically locks-in to correct phase aberrations of a rapidly varying turbulent atmosphere.
