Paper Abstract

The present portable solid-optics correlator for real-time pattern recognition uses pixelated spatial light modulators and phase-only filters, and will operate on sensor information extracted from any sensor system. Prospective operations of such a rugged and portable optical pattern recognizer include smart weapon midcourse guidance and navigation, target recognition, aim-point selection, and precise terminal homing. An account is given of the testing procedure being used by the U.S. Army missile command for a missile-guidance appligation of this optical correlator.
