Author Affiliations +
With the advent of high speed spatial light modulators, it is possible to write binary phase-only filters (BPOFs) faster than standard video rates. However, an optical correlation system which uses a camera operating at standard video rates to capture output correlation responses is limited to a maximum filter rate of 60 Hertz. This paper examines the use of a charge injection device (CID) camera to speed up the processing time of a BPOF-based rotation-invariant optical correlation system. Having integrating capabilities, the CID camera can integrate several output correlation plane responses during the frame time of the camera. In this paper, the performance of an integrating correlator is presented. The influence of factors such as the input image noise density, the number of integrated correlation responses, and the size of ternary low-frequency blocks on correlation responses are explored.
