Paper Abstract

The results are provided of the second phase of a program to determine the feasibility of fabrication of a coherent optical pattern recognition system to locate all pages in a microfilm data base on which a given key word occurs. Results obtained using an optical frequency plane correlator system with weighted matched spatial filter synthesis in a scaling correlator topology have been most promising. By proper matched spatial filter synthesis and system design, correlation degradations due to various expected differences between the input and reference functions in this optical word recognition system have been decreased to acceptable levels.
