Abstract : This report describes binary filters and applications of the Magneto-Optic Device (MOD) to pattern recognition. Three issues concerning use of the MOD in pattern recognition are reported herein. They are: a. The use of the MOD as an input device and as a spatial filter in a Vander Lugt correlator. b. Algorithms to generate binary filters for multiple images recognition. c. The use of MOD for multiple bit-slice correlations.
