|20150358588||OPTIMIZING DETECTION OF KNOWN LIGHT SOURCES - A method of optimizing detection of known light sources is provided herein. The method may include: positioning a plurality of cameras having different spectral bands to have at least partially identical fields of view in respect to a view that contains the light sources; capturing images of the light sources by the cameras at different spectral bands; estimating, for each pixel and all cameras, relative fraction values of collected sun light and of collected light sources; deriving, for each pixel, optimal fraction values of sun light and of the light sources, by minimizing, for each pixel, a mean square error estimation of an overall radiation with respect to the estimated relative fraction values.||12-10-2015|
|20130301119||OPTICAL ARRANGEMENT USABLE FOR AN ULTRA WIDE BAND OPTICAL SENSOR - An optical arrangement of lenses configured for use with an ultra wide band optical sensor is provided herein. The optical arrangement is associated with a back focal plane and further includes a first, a second, a third, a fourth, a fifth, and a sixth lens ordered from first to sixth along a common optical axis such that the first lens is farthest from the back focal plane and the sixth lens is closest to the back focal plane, wherein the first and the second lenses are made of zinc sulfide, the third and the sixth lenses are made of barium fluoride, the fourth lens is made of magnesium oxide, and the fifth lens is made of calcium fluoride, and wherein the lenses are selected to transfer any light within a wavelength range that contains 0.42 μm to 3.6 μm.||11-14-2013|
|20130163104||OPTICAL ARRANGEMENT WITH TEMPERATURE COMPENSATION FOR FOCAL LENGTH CHANGES - An optical instrument with temperature-related focal length variations compensation mechanism is provided herein. The optical instrument includes: a housing within a bore of the optical instrument, wherein the bore and the housing have each a distal end and a proximal end; a set of lenses located on a common optical axis and affixed within the housing, wherein the set of lenses is associated with a specified focal length for each specified temperature; and a temperature compensation member connecting the distal end of the housing to the distal end of the bore of the optical instrument, wherein the temperature compensation member comprises one or more sections whose thermal expansion coefficient and length along the optical axis are selected such that for a specified range of temperatures, the expansion of the temperature compensation member along the optical axis compensates for a change of the focal length of the lenses.||06-27-2013|
|20120314282||OPTICAL INSTRUMENT - An optical instrument that includes: an objective lens having an outer convex surface, an inner concave surface, a center, a first optical axis, and a bore cut substantially though the center; a set of objective lenses positioned within the bore and along the first optical axis; a first reflective element disposed along the first optical axis, within a first distance from the convex surface and tilted at a first tilt angle, the first reflective element configured to reflect rays incident along the first optical axis onto a second optical axis; and a second reflective element disposed along the second optical axis and within a second distance from the concave surface, wherein the first tilt angle is selected such that the first and the second distances are minimized.||12-13-2012|
