Paper Abstract

Exploitation of recent advances in acousto-optics can provide a significant improvement in data handling and analysis through the development of a new generation of instruments. These instruments exist in a variety of forms currently and are evolving rapidly into systems which are being fielded and used under adverse environmental conditions. The success ratio of these systems implies that a major effort will be supported during this decade to expand the number of applications and to explore the ultimate potential of acousto-optic devices and the collateral technologies. The feasibility of using equipment which has been augmented by or is based primarily on acousto-optic principles is described.
