Paper Abstract

This article is in two parts. Part I discloses the invention of a new range finding method, and Part II describes a novel video display architecture useful for viewing data acquired by such a range finder. Range finding by diffraction depends on the curvature of the wave front radiated from a point source as a proportional measure of distance. The novel display architecture, Random Address Processing, is a form of content-addressable memory built into a raster-scan graphics display.
