Paper Abstract

The optical sensor signal processing requirements for ballistic missile defense are reviewed. The paper emphasizes the signal processing techniques employed, their requirements, and the resultant impact on signal processor hardware. Highlights of the system and sensor are included for understanding. Signal Processing requirements are addressed for both the exo and endo optical sensor systems. The paper constitutes a review, delineating the ten to hundred million instructions/sec throughputs, the several million bytes of storage, the advanced real-time algorithm developments required, and the requirements on signal processing architecture and hardware.
