Abstract
Anamorphic detector optics can be used to improve the horizontal spatial resolution of SPRITE based thermal imagers, and their retrofitting is possible in many existing imagers. However, the effect on the detector's thermal sensitivity is dependent on detector and system parameters, and must be carefully analysed. Example systems are used to illustrate this analysis.
