Abstract

A design study was undertaken on an infrared, 3–5-μm, panoramic optical system for a particular monitoring application. The different types of systems investigated covered the conventional fish-eye lens system, a panoramic block arrangement, and a new type of configuration based on a panoramic shell. Examples of these systems are included, and their advantages and disadvantages are discussed.
