Abstract : The Image Analysis Facility (IAF) is a special-purpose digital computer system incorporating custom hardware and software that has been developing at the AFCRL Data Sciences Laboratory for over 10 years. The IAF is designed to provide highly flexible, on-line interactive processing of pictorial information that includes capabilities that are unique to a non-batch computer system. The IAF system hardware and software sections are broken down functionally and are fully discussed. Over 40 photographs illustrating selected program effects on pictures are presented. (Author)
