Abstract:

"ADVANCED OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC. (AOS) offers an innovative approach to the development of universal, inexpensive optics for uncooled IR applications with their Night Owl design. The requirements of small f-number optics and variable focal length to ensureuniform testing of various uncooled IR detectors are investigated. The proposed solution offers three f/1, diffraction limited systems for NetFires, Manportable, and Submunitions applications. The configurations are all refractive, all reflective, andcatadioptic. Coupled with innovative replication techniques, the Night OwlSystem offers significant cost savings and has direct application to missile seekers."
