Paper Abstract

We are currently building a custom adaptive optics system for viewing missile defense testing in Hawaii. The system will utilize natural target emission in the 3 - 5 micron MWIR for imagery, as well as for sensing the phase distortion caused by atmospheric turbulence. Use of the system with the 3.67 meter AEOS telescope will provide near-diffraction-limited performance for imaging at very long range and low elevation angle.
