Image registration measurement systems (MSs) often possess the following specific properties: the measurement results of these systems demand for further complex processing; these MSs deal with large amounts of data; and they possess a high level of invariance. In this paper a general description of measurement systems invariant with respect to a given group of transformations (e.g., translations, reflections, rotations of field of view) is considered. Then the problem of an optimum measurement computer system (MCS) synthesis for a given invariant MS is stated. It consists in obtaining a mapping (describing processing algorithm), delivering an optimum to the MCS as a whole. It is shown that proper allowance for invariance can significantly simplify MCS's synthesis problem solution and, as a consequence, appreciably cut down the computational costs involved both for constructing an optimum computational component of MCS and for its subsequent functioning.
