22 November 1977 Concepts For Automated Pattern Recognition Research With Hybrid Optical/Digital Systems
Author Affiliations +
Concepts for automated pattern recognition research with hybrid optical/digital systems are discussed for application to present and future mapping and terrain intelligence tasks. Optical and digital pattern recognition approaches which may contribute to hybrid techniques are outlined and a generalized hybrid system model introduces system components, their roles and their interfaces. The automated pattern recognition research program at USAETL, which mainly involves optical power spectral analysis, is sketched for applications research, new approaches, and integration of pattern recognition systems. The paper concludes with estimates of the present state of automated hybrid optical/digital pattern recognition that point to research areas for developing viable systems of the future.
