Abstract
The M1A2 Commander's Independent Thermal Viewer (CITY) lens design resulted from several years of interaction and tradeoff between optical designers, mechanical engineers, and systems engineers. While the general design concept remained constant throughout the process, important modifications were made to accommodate new performance requirements or to incorporate new fabrication technology.
