Paper Abstract

An acousto-optic (AO) range-Doppler processor is being developed to interface to an advanced ground-based radar system developed by the U.S. Army Missile Command (MICOM). The AO processor will replace the function of several digital processor boards currently in the radar. The primary objective of this program is the demonstration of an optical processor in the MICOM radar. This paper provides an overview of the MICOM radar system, discusses the design of the AO range-Doppler processor, and describes the RF and digital electronic interfaces required to achieve real-time operation in the MICOM radar.
