Paper Abstract

Under the guidance of the USAF Electronic Systems Division of Rome Laboratory and Dr. Joe Horner, Martin Marietta is conducting a 32 month Transfer of Optical Processing to Systems (TOPS) Optical Pattern Recognition program culminating in an automatic target recognition flight demonstration in early 1994. During the three phase TOPS program, four optical processing systems involving at least two spatial light modulator (SLM) technologies will be developed and tested. Martin Marietta and the U.S. Army Missile Command (MICOM) will conduct an extensive test program including environmental testing for a helicopter flight, a tower test program, and a helicopter captive carry flight test program at the Redstone Arsenal to recognize M60A2 tanks.
