Paper Abstract

The architectural and algorithmic design aspects of a digital optical processor for high performance adaptive radar array beam forming have been studied. Device research to provide the required integrated optics processor elements has been initiated. The design concept has advantages of modularity and expandability, as well as inherent embodiment of the primary advantages of optical computing: parallelism and interconnection capability. With successful device development, the design has the potential to provide all-optical adaptive radar processors having commanding and enduring advantages over electronically-implemented competitors, and capable of meeting far term radar performance requirements.
