Abstract : Multiaperture fly's eye optical signal transducing apparatus employing nonlinear electrical signal processing located adjacent the optical transducers in a multifunction integrated circuit device. The processed signals have enhanced low-level contrast and attenuated high contrast. Utilization examples, mathematical equations and related characteristic curves are also included along with exemplary circuit diagrams. (Author)
