Paper Abstract

This paper examines various techniques, both optical and mechanical, that can be used to ensure system performance in high shock situ.tions. From the optical viewpoint, this would involve optimizing system design to improve tolerance to such errors which are inevitable under operational conditions, and designing optical components that are not obviously going to be damaged by those same conditions. Mechanically, consideration must be given to methods of holding lenses, retainers, spacers, and of mounting mirrors and prisms that will provide the design location, as well as not damage the glass as the result of shock-induced elastic deformation of the metal parts.
