Paper Abstract

The advent of electro-optical reconnaissance sensors which incorporate silicon Charge Coupled Device (CCD) detectors has prompted the development of a number of objective lenses optimized to match their spectral and system-dominated requirements. All three classic types of optical systems (Dioptric, Catoptric and Catadioptric) fill special niches, so that the optimum choice for a specific application should properly be based upon operational requirements and physical constraints. Analyses are given to show how spectral optimization influences the optical design process. Comparisons of designs from among the three types are presented.
