Paper Abstract

An analysis is presented of the optical distortions and stress levels of side-mounted, uncooled windows for interceptors. The optical distortions addressed herein are caused by aerodynamic heating of the window. The boresight error, boresight bias rate, boresight error slope and blur circle were analyzed.
