Challenges in Optical Design for Soldier Systems
Pete Vallianos
Co-Founder,
 N2 Imaging Systems




Abstract:  N2 Imaging Systems is a designer and manufacturer of new generation soldier night vision and targeting systems, with emphasis on small, low power, and cost effective, thermal imaging and multisensor designs (i.e. Night vision goggles, sights, etc). This presentation is an overview, highlighting some of the of the key challenges in Soldier Systems Optics design, with example solutions (e.g. new broad band chalcogenides, hybrid polymer glass designs, places for optical computing, free form prisms, eyepieces, display technology directions, etc.). This presentation is from the viewpoint of designers, where the challenges are related to real mission requirements, real size/weight constraints, and performance, environmental and reliability requirements implicit in these designs.
Organized in Conjunction With SPIE Defense and Commercial Sensing
