  • Patent number: 10521883
    Abstract: System and method for image turbulence correction includes: receiving a plurality of consecutive image frames; demosaicing previous, current and preceding image frames into a plurality of same size overlapping video tiles; determining a displacement of each of the video tiles; converting the video tiles of the current image frame, the previous image frame, and the plurality of preceding image frames into a frequency domain; iteratively processing the video tiles of the previous image frame, the current image frame and the plurality of preceding image frames for turbulence correction in the frequency domain; converting the turbulence corrected video tiles into a spatial domain, wherein the converted turbulence corrected video tiles form a single video frame tile including turbulence degradation correction; and mosaicing the single video frame tiles including turbulence degradation correction together to generate a full field of view turbulence correct video stream.
