Abstract:

THE NAVY DESIRES AN OPTICAL CORRELATOR SYSTEM TO DETERMINE AIRCRAFT PARAMETERS DURING THE TERMINAL PHASE OF LANDING ON AIRCRAFT CARRIERS. THE FOUNDER OF ADVANCED OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC. (AOS) CONCEIVED AND DEVELOPED A SERIES OF OPTICAL CORRELATORS FOR MISE. TERMINAL GUIDANCE AND FOR SMART BOMBS. WE DEVELOPED A MULTICHANNEL TRACKING CORRELATOR WHICH WE PROPOSE TO APPLY TO THE AIRCRAFT LANDING PROBLEM. THE SYSTEM CONTINUALLY TRACKS AND COMPENSATES FOR THE SCALE OF THE TARGET.

OUR EXPERIENCE IN MISSILE AND BOMB TERMINAL GUIDANCE MAKES US A LEADING CANDIDATE TO DETERMINE THE POTENTIAL OF OPTICAL CORRELATORS FOR AIRCRAFT TERMINAL PHASE OF LANDING. OUR ACCESS TO STATE OF THE ART CORRELATORS FOR AND TAILHOOK IS AT A KNOWN SCALE.
