Abstract : An experimental study was conducted to determine the feasibility of automatically plotting reconnaissance imagery and automatically evaluating image quality using coherent optical processing techniques. The plotting sensitivity was determined experimentally as a function of filter bandwidth, scale, orientation, scene contrast and camera tilt. The effect of image quality on the correlation process was also studied. The experiments indicated that it was feasible to perform the plotting function optically to an accuracy of 1/600 of a frame in both directions at a speed of 50 frames per minute. Processing rates for the image quality of 20 frames per second or more should be possible. (Author)
