Paper Abstract

We describe a case study in which a telescope system, originally designed for a large format, visible camera, needed MWIR imaging capabilities while maintaining its original setup. The dedicated telescope system was adapted to share its existing optics with a new imaging module via a skew path concept. The challenges of non-rotationally symmetric design are explored along with an explanation of the methodology used to analyze and address the unique configuration.
