Paper Abstract

On the basis of optical correlation detection, photoelectric hybrid joint transform correlator(JTC) is widely used in military, aviation and intelligentization, etc. It has the advantages of great flexibility and high precision of recognition. However, the optical system which is in front of joint transform correlator(JTC) is applied to receive the infrared radiation of the target. It also has a certain influence on JTC’s detecting precision and tracking ability. Dual band infrared imaging system can receive different wave band of infrared radiation. Therefore, the image quality of optical system plays an important role in the joint transform correlator(JTC). According to the requirements of the joint transform correlator (JTC), the processes of optical design including the allocation of parameters and the selection of initial structure are presented. The infrared dual band coaxial telephoto system is designed for target detection. The system which is composed of four lenses can image in both 3μm~5μm and 8μm~12μm wavebands. The focal length is 200 mm and the relative aperture is 1:3. The system has the characteristics of small volume and compact structure. The optical system image quality is evaluated with ZEMAX optical design software. The results have shown that MTFs of the system are 0.62 and 0.35 for both wavebands respectively at 17lp/mm of spatial frequency which are closed to the diffraction limited curve. The relative aperture, field of view, and focal length are same for both spectral regions. The system meets the requirements of technical specification and improves the ability of JTC in target tracking and recognition.
