Paper Abstract

The results of our investigation of the applicability of optical processing to Adaptive Phased Array Radar (APAR) data processing will be summarized. Subjects that are covered include: (i) new iterative Fourier Transform based technique to determine the array antenna weight vector such that the resulting antenna pattern has nulls at desired locations, (ii) obtaining the solution of the optimal Wiener weight vector by both iterative and direct methods on two laboratory Optical Linear Algebra Processing (OLAP) systems, and (iii) an investigation of the effects of errors present in OLAP systems on the solution vectors.
