The retrieval efficiency is analyzed for atmospheric turbulence distorted images formed by single- and multi-aperture systems. Based on numerical simulation it is shown that the use of multi-aperture observation systems for computer correction of atmospheric distortions under anisoplanatism can significantly reduce the exposure time. In this case, the main distortions are well corrected when imaging for a short exposure time, which corresponds to the case of a “frozen” turbulent medium. Correction of residual small-scale distortions requires an-order-of-magnitude shorter time than in the case of long-exposure imaging with the use of common single-aperture observation systems.
