Abstract
The unique challenges encountered in the design of Infrared projection optics are described. Design examples covering the various avenues in solution space are presented each with their own distinct advantages and limitations. These candidate forms include refractive designs of differing materials, hybrid diffractive/refractive components and reflective assemblies. The results of these considerations thus better enable the systems engineer to anticipate the complexity and cost of scene projection optics.
