Paper Abstract

Analysis techniques and trade-offs leading to the design of an LWIR exoatmospheric optical system are outlined. The use of the ACCOS V and Polypagos Optical & Analysis programs and the APART Baffle Design program are discussed. Studies are outlined which include lens design, material reflectivity, baffle scattering, baffle diffraction, thermal warm up and low temperature distortion.
