AbstractTraditional seeker optics are composed of domes, gimbals, and other expensive components that can be difficult to integrate into the missile. A concept in which the seeker components are more easily integrated and conformal to the missile airframe is desirable. The proposed concept utilizes a multiple non-imaging detector scheme to collect the target signature that can be wrapped around the airframe, similar to a compound eye. Placement of the sensors is much less critical allowing for optimal warhead placement which helps provide for more predictable, lethal warheads. Sensors are constructed to be low-cost and occupy a small volume. This proposal discusses our concept for these sensors, their construction, and our design approach.
