Optical signal processors have application to laser and conventional microwave radars. This paper describes optical channelized receivers which offer 100 percent intercept probability, 1 GHz bandwidth and approximately 1 MHz detection cell resolution. The principles of operation of optical channelized receivers are set forth and typical performance specifications derived from actual system measurements are presented. These channelizers provide a detection capability which appears to closely match the coarse frequency determination requirements for coherent laser radar processors. A possible implementation of an optical channelizer in a LADAR doppler receiver is discussed.
