The paper deals with principles of construction, theory and fundamental properties of a new class of optical instruments, i.e. 1 and 2 coordinate polypupil systems on the basis of geometry of linear-homogeneous zones inside segmented optical macroelements in the field of sequential multiple reflections from a curvilinear surface. Discussed in the paper are: optical synchrogenerators creating discrete sets of light delays of coherent radiation pulses with fractionary-rational step of change of delay time; hybrid devices of telescopes and objective lenses, built around decentered segments (both solid and mirror ones) of polyscopic cylindrical astigmats; devices for internal scanning by focal matrices of radiation receivers within angular sectors from 5' X 5' to 120 degree(s) X 120 degree(s); and digital control methods by systems of space object light illumination with laser sources in specified spatial angles, discrete and continuous adjustments within scan sectors being made by slight mechanical removal of the scanning element by means of the principles of optical reduction.
