Abstract
"The developed dual wave-band, Visible/Long Wave Infrared camera will permit the collection of data in two widely seperate bands. Its unique miniature footprint and sturdy design will allow the system to be easily integrated into missile seekers, headmounted imagers, vehicle mounted imagers, stationary imagers, and into airborne reconnaissance systems. The developed design will benfit military users who require dual wave-band information for their detection algorithms. But equally important, it's unique optical design will permit the simplification of all uncooled microbolometer camera optics. Thisbenifit will greatly reduce costs of long focal length uncooled IR cameras systems industry wide."
