&U3S " lllA~ We have developed a technique for image analysis, representation, and decomposition. This technique was motivated by Stephanc Mallat's matching-pursuit algorithm. We've altered and simplified the mechanics of his algorithm to enable an extremely fast implementation via optical processing. Initial computer simulations show that our algorithm is(More)
The paper presents an advanced 3D imaging system based on a combination of stereo vision and light projection methods. A single digital camera is used to take only one shot of the object and reconstruct the 3D model of an object. The stereo vision is achieved by employing a prism and mirror setup to split the views and combine them side by side in the(More)
In real-world pattern recognition applications, multiple correlation filters can be synthesized to recognize broad variation of object classes, viewing angles, scale changes, and background clutters. Composite filters are used to reduce the number of filters needed for a particular target recognition task. Conventionally, the correlation peak is thresholded(More)
Feature detectors have been considered for the role of supplying additional information to a neural network tracker. The feature detector focuses on areas of the image with significant information. Basically, if a picture says a thousand words, the feature detectors are looking for the key phrases (keypoints). These keypoints are rotationally invariant and(More)

At the Optical Computing Lab in the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) a binary holographic data storage system was designed and tested with methods of recording and retrieving the binary information. Levels of error correction were introduced to the system including pixel averaging, thresholding, and parity checks. Errors were artificially introduced into the(More)
–– An innovative holographic memory system has been developed at JPL for high-density and high-speed data storage in a space environment. This system utilizes a newly developed electro-optic (E-O) beam steering technology for beam steering to enable high-speed random access memory read/write without moving parts. A compact CD-sized holographic memory(More)
