Paper Abstract

A hybrid, electro-optical image processing system capable of interpreting image algebra operations is presented. The classical, Vander Lugt optical system provides a basis for architectural discussion; however, it is anticipated that newer and more compact systems will provide the realization. Distribution of image algebra operations over the proposed system is the implementation. Linear and nonlinear algebraic system operations are shown to be obtainable using optical convolution and cross-correlation procedures.
