A new type of nonlinear image processor based on morphological processing is demonstrated. Morphological image processing is based on the successive binary convolution of an image with a selectable convolution kernel. Its field of application includes numerical optical computing and binary image processing. Simple serial commands from a small electronic computer control the selection of the convolution kernels for a given iteration and consequently the parallel processing of very large optical data planes. 1.
