Paper Abstract

We have configured an adaptive multi-layer optical classifier as a real-time radar target recognition system to recognize isolated aircraft targets from training profiles with varying orientation and/or range from the radar. The resulting system demonstrates the successful application of a real-time adaptive optical computing system to a challenging temporal signal processing problem with time- bandwidth product requirements too demanding for alternative approaches. In this paper we describe the multi-layer classifier in detail and present classification results of using the optical system to learn form example time- frequency representations of aircraft radar range profiles.
