Apparatus and method for compensating images for differences in aspect

A method and apparatus for eliminating aspect dependence of images generated by a radiative scanner such as a radar, sonar, or the like. Echoes from the scanner are received back and detected at a known and preselected number of aspects. The echo received at each aspect is multiplied by the transform of the point spread function of each of the other preselected aspects. In this manner, the frequency domain version of each echo is multiplied by the frequency domain point spread function of all of the preselected aspects, and the ultimate processed echo will be aspect independent.
