Abstract
Beam steering optical arrangement needs less volume envelope for same field of regard than other gimbal approaches. Both for imaging and four quadrant missile applications, volume is critical parameter limiting system performance. Therefore, a conceptual design of beam steering method has been focused on both imaging and four quadrant missiles. In this study; four different optical designs have been made by using both beam steering and regular method for mid-wave infra-red imaging and four quadrant systems. Optical designs performances have been illustrated in simulation results. By using manufactured Risley prisms, some experimental results are conducted to compare simulations results.
