Paper Abstract

We review the basic operating principles involved in development of a real time hybrid opto-electronic radar processor to form a 2-D range-Doppler image for ISAR applications. An overview description of the physical implementation of the processor developed at PSI is included, along with a discussion of the high level processor control structure required for performing the radar algorithm and system test functions. Finally, we present the results of preliminary testing of the pulse compression processor (PCP) which forms the cornerstone of the optical processing operation. The key capability of the optical correlator to map precise phase shifts via direct control of the radar transmitter carrier IF is demonstrated.
