Abstract

Fourier analysis is commonly utilized as a design tool for either (two-dimensional) optics or (one-dimensional) electronic systems. This paper presents a two-dimension to one-dimension transformation that allows the unified linear system analysis of both the optics and the electronics of an electro-optic system. The transformation, related to the projection-slice theorem, permits the definition of three variants of the matched filter. These filters optimize all electronic and optic components of a scanning electro-optic system that is sensing a source superimposed upon a structured background with a |f|n power spectral density, where f is the vector representation of the background spatial frequency and n is typically 2.
