The use of aspheric elements in FLIR type infrared systems is shown to result in system performance improvement. Improved image quality, reduced shading and higher transmission can be obtained, while at the same time, reducing the system cost. The manufacturing and test technologies which allow for cost effective use of aspherics are described. An advanced small FLIR which uses aspherics is cited as an example of the concepts presented.
