Abstract : This research concerns optical data processing for missile guidance and target recognition. It uses pattern recognition techniques with an increased use of knowledge base, inference machine and associative processor techniques. This work concerns new algorithms, real time and practical realizations of such systems, and new initial work on associative processors, symbolic rule-based processors and directed graph processors (with new attention to unique optical realizations of such systems). Keywords: Optical data processing; Pattern recognition; Feature extraction; Associative processors; Symbolic processors; Rule based processors.
