Paper Abstract

Ultraviolet warning technology is one of the important methods for missile warning. “Solar blind region” provides a very effective way to detect the target for missile approaching alarm. In order to find the target by detecting the ultraviolet radiation of missile efflux plasma, ultraviolet optical system design of large field of view and large relative aperture is the key for the technology of ultraviolet detection. From the academic point of view, the structure parameters are determined for 2048×2048 ultraviolet CCD detector according to the requirements of ultraviolet warning system. The refractive ultraviolet warning optical system is designed for 0.24μm ~0.28μm wave band with ZEMAX optical design software. The focal length is 41mm, the field of view is 46°and the relative aperture is 1:3.5. In order to ensure the detected energy, aspherical and binary surface are adopted to reduce the aberration and spot size of the system. Within the 0.8 field of view RMS of spot diagram is less than 13μm. It is smaller than the pixel size 13.5μm of ultraviolet CCD. The energy concentration is more than 80%. This optical system has long focal length and large relative aperture that meet the energy requirements of warning system. Large field of view can satisfy the range of searching targets. The spot diagram RMS of each field of view is so small that can meet the requirement of image quality. In addition, the system is composed of six lenses. The structure of it is simple, the volume is small and the application is very convenient.
