Paper Abstract

Advanced Optical Systems has developed the world's smallest and lowest cost, fully functional target recognition and tracking system. The heart of the ULTOR target recognition and tracking system is an optical correlator. The system includes real-time preprocessing, large filter stores, filter management logic, correlation detection and thresholding, correlation tracking, and data output. It is self contained, receiving operational commands as an Internet appliance. We will present a demonstration of some of the capabilities of the system using live video signals and real target models. The ULTOR system has wide application in both military and commercial settings. The Navy is considering use of the ULTOR system in several programs, including missile systems and unmanned aerial vehicles.
