Abstract
The optical performance of an infrared sparse sensor detector system is modeled. Such a system, due to its low cost, uses single element, spherical, off-the-shelf optical components that may produce poor quality off-axis images. Since sensors will not populate the entire focal plane, it is necessary to evaluate how the optics will affect sensor placement. This analysis will take into account target location, optical system aberrations, and wavelength, in an effort to determine the proper placement of the sparsely populated sensors.
