Abstract : Our research concerns optical data processing for missile guidance and target recognition. It uses pattern recognition techniques with an increasing use of knowledge base, inference machine and associative processor techniques. Our Year 2 work addresses devices (the liquid crystal television), Kalman filters, intrinsic features, iconic filters, and symbolic processors. These all represent quite novel optical processing concepts. Our work also concerns new architectures and concepts such as: relational graph processors, optical linear discriminant processors, model-based optical processors, hierarchical symbolic optical correlators, and optical associative processors.
