We analyze the anisoplanatic adaptive receiver system field of view (FOV) and the possibility of controlling the system FOV by using an adaptive optics system with multiple wave-front sensors that sense wave-front phase aberrations of reference waves with different arrival angles. The conventional decoupled stochastic parallel gradient descent (D-SPGD) technique is generalized to include output signals from multiple wave-front sensors. The multiple-reference D-SPGD control algorithm introduced here is applied to obtain an anisotropic FOV in adaptive receiver systems by using two and three reference waves.
