Abstract:

Correlations and convolutions are fundamental tools of signal and image processing. Applications include object recognition, automatic tracking and guidance, machine vision for automated manufacturing processes, autonomous vehicles, and general purpose image processing such as searching and analyzing graphical data bases. Optical systems can perform these operations enormously faster than electronic systems. Optical correlators are becoming feasible due to advances in spatial light modulator technology and in high-speed imagers. In order to become more commer-cially viable, correlators must be small, inexpensive, and easy to use. However, conventional ways of building correlators produce systems that are too large, too expensive, and too difficult to use to have broad applicability. We have recently developed a highly compact, highly integrated approach to building correlators that could greatly reduce their cost and size and enhance their ruggedness. Based on the new architecture, we propose to develop a complete system design and manufacturing process for building OEM correlator modules.
