Abstract : Separate features of a composite image in a field of view illuminated by a laser beam are respectively monitored by low level optical cavity resonators of an array from which optical data outputs are distributed to high level resonators for optical data correlation. Adjacent low level resonators of the array are coupled by controllers for modal interaction modified by feedback to the controllers from the high level resonators through optical signal transforming means for signal correction purposes in pattern recognition of the composite image.
