Poor performance in key components has limited the development of optical target recognition systems. New components are now available, however, that exhibit size and speed characteristics compatible with image processing applications. The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command is well known for acquiring and testing a variety of spatial light modulators for image processing applications. We have recently acquired a pair of Sanders Multiple Quantum Well Spatial Light Modulators. These modulators will be evaluated in a manner similar to that used with previous modulators to determine contrast ratio, switching characteristics, optical efficiency, and residual phase modulation. The results of these measurements will be presented.
