A cellular processing system for analyzing an image comprising a matrix of points employs an image memory for storing digital data signals representative of each of the points, a plurality of special function processing units, each adapted to perform a specific operation on one or more images, and data bus means for selectively distributing image data from the image memory to one or more preselected function processors for processing in a cascaded fashion and returning the processed data signals back to image memory. The special function process units include a pipeline processor employing one or more programmable, substantially identical neighborhood transformation stages and an image combiner including means for performing arithmetic, logical, and conditional operations on one or more images.
