The Weapons Sciences Directorate has dedicated many years of research to the development of optical correlators for applications in automatic target tracking and recognition. A great deal of effort has been directed toward the implementation of compact optical systems, optimal filter technologies, and high frame rate modulators. This effort follows general trends in the industry to improve the quality of the correlation plane. However, relatively little attention has been directed toward automating the analysis of images obtained at the correlator's output. The existence of a reliable post processing scheme is a prerequisite to the construction of a fully automatic correlation system. The design, construction and programming of a hardware post processor has recently been completed, and preliminary tests of the device have been successful.
