The cost of Far Infrared Optics used in Night Vision Thermal Imaging Systems is an appreciable percentage of the total system cost. Testing and specification of these optical components can either increase or decrease the final cost of the system. The choice of test equipment and procedures as well as specification of unassembled elements are large factors in the cost of finished optical components. Through an understanding of the appropriate specification and a judicious choice of testing, quality Far Infrared Optics can be fabricated at reasonable cost.
