Abstract : The patent provides an improved high speed correlation system for identifying unknown input signals by simultaneous comparison with a large plurality of known stored reference data. It provides such capabilities in a wholly electro-optical system which is simple in concept and operation, compact in size, and inherently possesses a high degree of reliability because of the absence of moving parts or mechanical elements.
