Abstract

In Phase II, Mainstream will continue development efforts for several lenses used in the stabilized glide slope indicator (SGSI) system and Fresnel lens optical landing system (FLOLS). Mainstream produced prototype clear acrylic lenticular lenses prototypes that passed optical tests performed by the engineering support activity (ESA) at NAWCADLKE in Phase I. Mainstream will develop conformal color formulations for the green, amber, and red lenticular lenses, as well as develop a manufacturing method for a Fresnel lens used in the FLOLS. Mainstream will specify techniques, equipment, and tooling to manufacture each component, outline quality control and testing procedures, develop high-fidelity cost and lead time models, produce prototypes, and inspect and test lenses with the ESA. Comprehensive technical data and manufacturing processes will be compiled through the development process for completion of a SAR package for all lens NSN items. The overall goal of the program is to become an approved supplier of the proposed lenses to DLA.
