The principle of redundant spacings calibration has previously been described for the purpose of calibrating piston phase aberration affecting elements of a dilute aperture array using a system of linear equations in terms of the aperture phases as well as object phase information. Here we develop matrices for the correction of piston phase aberration by use of image sharpness and also by phase retrieval. these are both presented in wavefront sensor formulation in order to draw analogy between the approaches. We then discuss solution ambiguity affecting both methods and describe array design to prevent such ambiguity. the problem of increased image aliasing under image sharpness correction is also highlighted.

A statistical examination of the 500-mb 48-hr. prognoses prepared by Fleet Numerical Weather Facility, Monterey, California Kelly, Roger W.; Nelson, Frank C. (Monterey, California: U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1963);The Fleet Numerical Facility (FNWF) 500-mb long-wave prognoses at latitudes 20N through 70N were analyzed statistically for possible errorbias. FNWF issued a correction field (verified minus prognostic) for each latitude ...
