program, IBM 7094 computers, CDC 6600 computers At the core of the US Army Missile Commands MICOMs capability to design and analyze optical system performance is a computer program written for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA called FORTRAN Optical Lens Design Program FOLDP. Personnel at MICOM have modified this program to use the available SC 4020 digital computer plotter and developed a program to do a complete analysis of the image produced by the finished design. The modifications required on the basic program are discussed and a complete description of the Image Analysis Program and user guidelines are presented. The Image Analysis Program can be used in conjunction with any raytrace program which yields ray coordinates and direction cosines on the final optical surface as its end product.
