Paper Abstract

The Army is currently investigating the potential of optical and/or hybrid optical/digital techniques to solve many of its signal processing, target identification and communications problems. It is expected that optical or hybrid optical/digital techniques will find application where large quantities of data must be processed in real time or near real time. This paper will discuss the present Army activities in acousto-, electro-, integrated and fiber optics. A few representative current applications are image and signal correlation, spectral analysis and multi-mode fiber optic systems.
