Paper Abstract

Some of the problems in realizing a practical optical correlator based ATR system are discussed. Two factors play a key role in the discussion: (1) the system and component issues of optical correlators, and (2) the processing potential of digital processors. The lack of an appropriate Filter SLM is identified as a major problem area for optical correlators, both now and in the future at the current rate of development and emphasis.
