Paper Abstract

An acousto-optic correlator has been developed for application to radar report-track association. This correlator employs a 2D, ferro-electric liquid crystal spatial light modulator for storage of track data while report data is input to the system's Bragg cell. Performance matches that of digital processing with the added capability of operation at much higher processing rates.
