The traditional approach to designing an electro-optical imaging system involves first optimizing the lens subsystem using an optical measure of performance and second optimizing the image processing subsystem. Designing the system in this sequential fashion fails to exploit opportunities for efficient cooperation between the optical and digital systems. We introduce a novel framework for designing digital imaging systems and specifically an end-to-end merit function based on pixel-wise mean squared error. We describe how we adapt commercial ray tracing software to design the matched optical and image processing subsystems in a joint fashion while satisfying the constraints imposed on each of the subsystems.
