Abstract
By jointly optimizing the design of optics, mechanics, and electronics systems with reduced size, weight, and cost can be realized. This joint optimization acts to increase the system trade-space compared to systems that optimize each component separately. Increasing the size of the system trade-space allows highly customized system design. An example of joint optimization is given for a LWIR imaging system with a conformal first surface. This example demonstrates an approximately 50% reduction in size, weight, and cost compared to acceptable traditional system solutions.
