Abstract : The patent describes a digital correlator and integrator which uses a core memory to implement the cross-correlation and post-integration operations simultaneously. The system is a hybrid correlator that treats one of two sample channels linearly while it delays and stores the information in the other channel. The samples from both channels are multiplied together then averaged repetitively into stored data to generate a time-compressed correlation function which is retained in digital form within the memory.
