Paper Abstract

An electro-optic processor (EOP) incorporating a miniature ruggedized optical correlator (MROC) has been fabricated for use on a remotely piloted vehicle (RPV). The EOP consists of a single-board computer for system control, a MaxVideo 20 card for interfacing to the sensor and performing image processing functions, and an MROC module. The MROC and associated electronics (SLM drive electronics, CCD readout electronics, laser controller, preprocessor, and controller) are configured in a chassis that is placed into an RPV with a visible camera for signal input and a telemetry system for output of the optical processor to the ground.
