Abstract
The primary objective of this program is to perform pulse compression in an existing military system using an optical processor. To achieve this objective, an acousto-optic (AO) range- Doppler processor is being developed to interface to an advanced ground-based radar system developed by the U.S. Army Missile Command (MICOM) and replace the function of several digital processor boards currently in the radar. This paper provides an overview of the MICOM radar system, describes the AO range-Doppler processor, the rf and digital electronic interfaces required to achieve real-time operation in the MICOM radar, and system integration issues.
