The object of the present invention is accomplished by the use of a gyro-stabilized, rotating, spectral filter which is wedge-shaped to enable incoming IR and L energy to be focused at different points separated from one another and to be focused at different points in a combined IR and L seeker so that the different types of energy can be separately detected. Another object of the invention is to reduce the room required by target-seeking systems when IR and L systems are to be employed simultaneously at any location. The seekers of an IR and L target-seeking system are combined into a single unit.
