Optical design and analysis of a riflescope system

Bayar, Cevdet
Today, riflescope systems are used widely, mostly by military forces. In this study, a riflescope working in the visible range (400-700 nm) will be designed. The riflescope will have 3 degrees field of view and maximum 15 cm total track. Total design length is limited to 15 cm because a short riflescope is more stabilized than a long one with respect to thermal instability and vibrational effects. Taken into account the cost factor, only two types of glasses will be used in the design. One of them is NBK7 a crown glass and the other is N-F2 a flint glass. Moreover, Schmidt-Pechan prism will be used to construct an erected image. The optical performance analysis of the design is also carried out for a production ready riflescope system.


Cyber Warfare Integration to Conventional Combat Modeling: A Bayesian Framework
Sengul, Zafer; Acartürk, Cengiz (2021-01-01)
© 2021 IEEE.Malware propagation is capable of introducing adverse effects in military operations since today's high-tech military weapons and command, control, and communication systems are essentially interconnected ICT systems. Conventional warfare models have been recently upgraded to include cyber warfare elements to reflect the potential influence of cyber-attacks. In the present study, we propose and evaluate a framework for modeling the integrated effect of the spread of malware through computer netw...
Optimization algorithms for resource allocation problem of air tasking order preparation
Bayrak, Ahmet Engin; Polat, Faruk; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In recent years, evolving technology has provided a wide range of resources for Military forces. However, that wideness also caused resource management difficulties in combat missions. Air Tasking Order (ATO) is prepared for various missions of air combats in order to reach objectives by an optimized resource management. Considering combinatorial military aspects with dynamic objectives and various constraints; computer support became inevitable for optimizing the resource management in air force operations...
Timing issues in a terawatt laser system
Yılmaz, Remziye Pınar; Altan, Hakan; Department of Physics (2008)
In the laser market, there have been various kinds of lasers designed and utilized for different purposes. As time goes on, their powers have been gradually increased from kilowatts (kW) to terawatts (TW). One of the most famous methods in laser science technology is Chirped Pulse Amplification (CPA) which enables table-top terawatt laser systems. This method provides high output power (tens of TW), very short pulse duration (few tens of femtoseconds) and large energy (mJ) for ultrafast lasers. One of the m...

Explosives are employed extensively not only in military areas but also in civilian applications. There are many researchers working on the discovery of explosives. In recent years, synthetic and theoretical studies on polycyclic aromatic explosives have received significant interest. The present short review concentrates on the synthesis and some of the physico-chemical characteristics of energetic materials of the classes of tetraazapentalene, naphthalene, di-and tetraaza-naphthalene, pyrazolo-pyrazole, b...

Electromechanical actuators are widely used in miscellaneous applications in engineering such as aircrafts, missiles, etc. due to their momentary overdrive capability, long-term storability, and low quiescent power/low maintenance characteristics. This work focuses on electromechanical control actuation systems (CAS) that are composed of a brushless direct current motor, ball screw, and lever mechanism. In this type of CAS, nonlinearity and asymmetry occur due to the lever mechanism itself, saturation limit...
