A real-time two-dimensional hybrid processor consisting of a coherent optical system, an optical/digital interface, and a PDP-11/15 control minicomputer is described. The input electrical-to-optical transducer is an electron-beam addressed potassium dideuterium phosphate (KD<inf>2</inf>PO<inf>4</inf>) light valve. The requirements and hardware for the output optical-to-digital interface, which is
Correlation, hybrid computer, optical computing, optical/digital interface, optical/digital processor, pattern recognition, radar data processing.
