Preliminary night—time experimental results of airborne remote diagnostics of the wavy sea surface state are discussed in the paper. The results were obtained by frame—by—frame statistical processing of TV images recorded with illumination of the sea surface by a directional optical pulse. The estimates of spatial amplitude and frequency characteristics and autocorrelation function of the image structure are treated and their informative parameters are compared for background wind—driven sea waves and in the wake of sailing ship.
