Abstract : This patent describes a prismatic anamorphic system for use with an optical correlator. The prismatic anamorphic system incorporates four rotatable prisms arranged within the optical correlator thereby permitting correlator operation about unity magnification with no image rotation and no axial translation as the magnification is varied. In this manner proper correlation of a pair of photographs can be performed in an economical and highly reliable fashion. (Author)
