Abstract
The report is in three parts, addressing issues that pertain to optical signal processing for electronic support measures system. Section 1 presents a review of techniques for direction of arrival estimation. In Section 2 a review is presented of the literature on optical modulators. These are devices that temporarily modulate the light amplitude in response to a driving electrical signal, or represent an input signal as a one- or two-dimensional spatially varying transmittance (or reflection) function. In Section 3 a preprocessor is described for acousto-optic receiver signals. The issue of interest is to extract enough data to recognize RF emitters, and yet be able to compress the data from many detectors into a small number of signal descriptors. The principle of operation for the preprocessor is based on a simple algorithm known as "hysteresis smoothing".
