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.

Optical systems are used for increasing the situational awareness and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities for military purposes. MWIR (Midwave infrared) and LWIR (Long wave infrared) waveband informations are the first two wavebands information in the atmospheric transmission window that are harnessed in military night vision optical systems. Another candidate of these operable wavebands is the SWIR (Shortwave infrared). Shortwave infrared (SWIR) imaging is an extension of Near ...
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...

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...
Modelling and controller design of the gun and turret system for an aircraft
Mert, Ahmet; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
Gun and gun turret systems are the primary units of the weapon systems of an aircraft. They are required to hit targets accurately during operations. That is why a complete, high precision control of weapon systems is required. This function is provided by accurate modeling of the system and the design of a suitable controller. This study presents the modeling of and controller design for the gun and turret system for an aircraft. For the controller design purpose, first the mathematical model of the system...
