Paper Abstract

The design considerations and approach to developing a 5.5X afocal telescope to retrofit an existing prototype FLIR system that did not anticipate the inclusion of a telescope are presented. Besides having to meet certain mechanical limitations, the afocal telescope was designed to correct for residual aberrations in the FLIR optics rather than being more generic in nature. The optical performance of the FUR with and without the afocal telescope are compared. Fabrication issues and test results will be presented.
