This paper describes a compressive sensing strategy developed under the Compressive Optical MONTAGE Photography Initiative. Multiplex and multi-channel measurements are generally necessary for compressive sensing. In a compressive imaging system described here, static focal plane coding is used with multiple image apertures for non-degenerate multiplexing and multiple channel sampling. According to classical analysis, one might expect the number of pixels in a reconstructed image to equal the total number of pixels across the sampling channels, but we demonstrate that the system can achieve up to 50% compression with conventional benchmarking images. In general, the compression rate depends on the compression potential of an image with respect to the coding and decoding schemes employed in the system.
