Paper Abstract

The Army has maintained a low continuing profile of interest in optical data processing for radar systems. The field is finally reaching a degree of maturity, as evidenced by this conference. Is the time at hand to start seriously applying optics investigation to radar systems, or are we still in a pie-in-the-sky mode? I believe that most of the straightforward, easy applications have been preempted by the fantastic developments in digital circuitry; but, there are radar systems and possibilities which are hard to imagine without the power of an optical computing system. ODP has made great strides recently, but there are still gaps before we apply our concepts to fielded systems.
