Many photographic systems are located on moving platforms. Because of mechanical vibrations that exist on those platforms, the photographed image is distorted. To avoid those distortions requires that very complicated mechanical attenuators be used. We suggest an optoelectronic image-processing algorithm to overcome the distortions caused by such vibrations. The algorithm for different types of vibration is reformulated in an exact manner, as opposed to the reformulations of previously known calculations. Furthermore, new types of vibration are explored. The algorithm is fully computerized and thus avoids the need for attenuating devices.
