Paper Abstract

A real-time coherent optical range/Doppler processor has been designed for BMDATC and the breadboard is being built. It consists of a pulse compressor based on an acousto-optic matched filter correlator followed by a two-dimensional range/Doppler processor utilizing a liquid crystal light valve. The design bandwidth is 150 MHz. Some very preliminary results are available.
