Paper Abstract

Transition of optical components from laboratory concept demonstrations to flight-worthy production-ready devices is of great interest to both system integrators and potential component manufacturers. Technology limitations have been one barrier to success, though limited communication between air-frame system engineers and optical developers appears to be as significant. The current presentation will address some of the detailed requirement characteristics for application in military rotorcraft, with emphasis on performance, redundancy, size, weight, and environmental conditions.
