Abstract:

The problem with conventional optical systems is that they suffer from a lack of adequate resolution because of the wide field-of-view necessary for initial target acquisition. The wide field of view is required because the target may be off-axis. After initial acquisition, a narrow field-of-view high resolution optical system is required. The Non-Linear Lens combines both of these features, wide field-of-view and high resolution on-axis. A zoom capability was added to the basic Non-Linear Lens to evaluate the effect of a range of wide fields-of-view.
