The design challenge of an optical system is not limited to the optical design itself and its performance in nominal conditions; it extends to the realisation of a system which includes tolerancing and manufacturability as well as meeting system requirements such power consumption, heat dissipation, mass, cost constraints and timescales. In this presentation, optical designs for different applications ranging from satellite optical imager to Augmented Reality Displays are presented to illustrate the different challenges that an optical design needs to address. Augmented Reality will prove to be a very useful tool in our everyday lives; it brings elements of the virtual world into the real world, enhancing what we see, hear, and feel. With this comes a high demand for compact, light, affordable and high-quality displays.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
