Paper Abstract

The develoment of the specified optical system parameters is followed from initial constraints, recuirements, and scenarios. The process includes consulting with the optical designers, to keep the design practical and performing analyses, to define the system configuration, such as amortioning apertures and spectral bands. The fire control system consists, of two sighting systems, a search sensor called the Squad Leader's, Periscope and a tracking system with integral laser rangefinder called. the. Gunner's Sight. Both systems are stabilized and have a night vision capability.
