Abstract
Abstract Optical image evaluation procedures as specifically applied to the analysis of scanning infrared (IR) optical systems having discrete detectors and viewing isolated point sources in a low-intensity structured background are discussed. Details about the system design requirements determination, the optical performance evaluation, the interaction of the detector focal plane design and evaluation procedure are included. The optical system analysis is performed using the computer program POLYANA, a program developed by The Aerospace Corporation. A complete example utilizing an F/2.5 all reflective Schmidt system is described in detail to illustrate the analysis procedure.
