Abstract:

Acoustoptic signal processing architectures and methods are developed for a variety of 2-D problems. A formulation of the universe synthetic aperture radar problem as an energy minimization procedure is reported. Acoustoptic systems for multiple target detection and 2-D spectrum analysis are experimentally demonstrated. The application of acoustoptics to the adaptive beam-forming for broadband antenna arrays is described. Author
