Abstract : This report presents a detailed overview of the research performed by the analog optical signal processing group at the Photonics Center of Rome Laboratory in the area of automated optical target recognition. This research encompasses phase-only filter optical correlator filter development, optical image remapping, optical image segmentation, and optical neural networks. While the focus of the work is directed toward military applications we also present potential commercial uses for many of these systems.
