Abstract
Automatic target recognition has a wide range of applications spanning many different imagery formats. These input formats include, but are not limited to video, infrared imagery, and synthetic aperture radar imagery. Optical correlators, while not the total ATR solution, have the potential to aid in this complex task. One area of recent interest has been near and far field effects in synthetic aperture radar imagery. An optical correlator has been used to qualitatively assess the differences in imagery obtained for both the near and far field cases. Reference filters were made for each case and compared to imagery from the opposite case. The results of these experiments will be presented.
