Abstract : The report summarizes the results of a study to determine the use of charge coupled devices (CCD's) in signal processing systems. This volume deals with digital CCD signal processing. Specific means of implementing digital functions with CCD's are described, and the range of applications is examined. It is concluded that digital CCD signal processing functions are feasible with today's technology, and that such functions are more easily programable and more widely applicable than analog functions. Specific examples are given in some detail, including a 16-bit arithmetic fast Fourier transform 'butterfly' on a ship. Recommendations for future work are included. (Author)
