Paper Abstract

Optical image processing has, with a few notable and important exceptions, been overtaken by digital image processing. However, current technology in incoherent-to-coherent converters, optical detectors, and microprocessors is producing renewed interest in optical methods. Future systems will probably be combinations of optical and electronic subsystems. The current trends in this field are discussed and examples are given of present systems so that future prospects can be evaluated.
