Paper Abstract

When developing an LED illumination system, the designer is often restricted to a constrained working volume. This can lead to efficiency loss, thermal issues, and performance restriction. It becomes important to understand the etendue of the source and optics. Also, the optics should be designed so as to maximize the efficiency of the system. Along with discussion of these issues, a case example will be presented where incandescent position lights on the F-15 fighter are replaced with LED systems that have both visible and near infra-red functions.
