Abstract

The laboratory realization of smart matched spatial filters (specifically snythetic discriminant functions) is considered and studied via computer simulation. The realization of these distortion-invariant correlator functions by computer-generated hologram and other methods is considered. Multiclass filters are addressed in this work. Phase-only filters and filters with a quantized number of amplitude and phase levels are considered. Phase-only filters are found to perform well for some imagery, but filters with some amplitude response are preferable. We also considered the number of phase and magnitude levels required and found four levels of each to be adequate.
