Jerome Gilles receives three year grant from Air Force Office of Scientific Research

Jerome Gilles, assistant professor of mathematics, has received a three year grant from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research for the project “Image processing algorithms for imaging through atmospheric turbulence.”

In the past decade, several different long-range imaging systems were developed working in the optical range (in visible as well as infrared spectral bands). A direct consequence of imaging distant scenes is the effects of the atmosphere, especially the presence of turbulence, which becomes non-negligible and affects the final resolution, limiting the efficiency and making it difficult to detect and identify possible targets. For this project, Dr. Gilles plans to continue his previous work on image restoration and target detection.
