Paper Abstract

The TOPS optical correlator program will demonstrate the capability for optical processors to perform target recognition and tracking tasks. This paper describes the demonstration to be performed. Operational considerations such as system complexity, reprogrammability, and throughput are discussed. Growth of these type systems and long term prospects are examined.
