Abstract:
Many aerospace sensor platforms have a fixed opto-mechanical layout due to harsh environmental conditions. This design decision results in tight opto-mechanical tolerances. Computational optics is a technology that is currently used in the commercial market, but has yet to be implemented in the defense industry. By using this methodology, the system will aim to reduce production cost by investing in non-recurring engineering (NRE) investments. This project aims to implement a proof of concept of computational optics to improve image quality while increasing depth of focus using wavefront coding.
