Abstract : The objective of this study was to estimate the adaptability of a STARAN associative array processor (AAP) manufactured by Goodyear Aerospace Corporation (GAC) to the data processing problems of the U.S. Army Engineer Topographic Laboratories (ETL). The study was implemented in two phases. Phase I incorporated a functional survey and explicit planning involving both GAC and ETL. The following six data processing tasks were examined: AS-11BX postprocessing; raster processing - automated cartography; simultaneous multi-exposure analytical calibration (SMAC) program; SLAR image processing; scene generation; and, instantaneous contours. Phase II consisted of the study, validation, and reporting of the areas of interest selected at the conclusion of Phase I.
