Paper Abstract

Advances in mosaic focal plane array IR technology and optical spatial light modulators make an optical processor for high resolution imagery most attractive. A conceptual methodology to integrate these diverse technologies will be described. The system concept involves a fully corrected IR focal plane, a digital preprocessor and an optical correlator. The resultant system has potential use for missile guidance, surveillance, reconnaissance, and other similar pattern recognition problems.
