Paper Abstract

A vanderLugt correlator is under construction using two Sanders binary Multiple Quantum Well Spatial Light Modulators. This correlation is part of the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command's three-year program to evaluate the latest generation hardware available for image processing. The Sanders modulators offer extremely high frame rates that make them attractive for image processing applications. The limiting factor in this correlator will actually be the output detector rather than the spatial light modulator. The correlator will be evaluated using infrared imagery to determine its performance in a target cueing/target screening applications. The results from these experiments as well as future plans will be presented.
