Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design analysis, hardware fabrication and tests performed on a compact four-mirror optical system. This optical system is part of a small, lightweight infrared sensor capable of quick cooldown and interfacing with scan gimbals. During the development of this system, many fabrication techniques have been advanced. The combination of new techniques in design analysis and beryllium mirror fabrication at Honeywell Electro-Optics Center resulted in a sensor whose image quality is maintained over a wide temperature range and during unusual dynamic environments. This paper is an overview of the qualifications of a Compact Four-Mirror Optical System.
