Abstract
Optical design, engineering, and manufacturing operate as independent entities. Outmoded specifications for material, geometry, tolerances, and mounting add to cost, lead time, and manufacturing complexity of both military and commercial optics. The optics industry maintains outdated stand-alone design, engineering, and manufacturing systems that do not support integration or communications. This single island of technology adds greatly to the final cost of optical systems.
