Abstract:

Research on optical data processing for missile guidance and robotics is described. Components addressed include acousto-optic cells. Pattern recognition work includes feature extraction Fourier coefficients and moments and correlation using synthetic discriminant functions. All pattern recognition work concerns multi-class distortion-invariant pattern recognition. Optical linear algebra processors are addressed with attention to algorithms, architectures, applications, Kalman filtering, system fabrication, accuracy and performance, plus error source modeling and simulation.
