1 September 1990 Challenge to demonstrate an optical pattern recognition system

System design considerations are presented for a rugged optical-processing system for real-time pattern recognition in a military environment, with a view to the criteria of significant system-capabilities demonstrations. The solid-optics correlator presented employs an electronically addressable magnetooptic spatial light modulator at the input to allow easy interconnection with a wide variety of sensor systems; the output device used is a commercially available CCD array. An ideal demonstration of the correlator would involve an antiarmor/antihelicopter beyond-line-of-sight missile that is controlled via bidirectional fiber-optics link.
