AbstractThis thesis explains and develops the design of a compact 3-5μm catadioptric optical imaging system. This system is intended for use with a two-dimensional array detector that replaces the need for the scan mirrors of a traditional FLIR system. This design also illustrates the complete optical design process. From the basic system requirements, to a complete design with consideration to such items as assembly and alignment, cost, and maintaining focus for a change in the environmental temperature.
