The E802 spectrometer at the Brookhaven AGS has been used to obtain two-particle inclusive pion distributions from E/A = 14.6 GeV 28Si + 197Au arid 27A1 interactions. Data are presented for pions near center-of-mass rapidity, in the nucleon-nucleon frame, from central events. We present preliminary results for source distribution parameters obtained by fitting the two-particle correlation function. The potential for studying kaon correlations in the E802 apparatus is also discussed.
