Paper Abstract

The Hughes Aircraft Corporation (HAC) LCLV has been used in a Vander Lugt type optical correlator designed for target tracking. The important characteristics of the LCLV for this application are resolution, sensitivity, and response time. The results of measuring these characteristics for two LCLV's are reported.
