Characterization of the AWARE 40 wide-field-of-view visible imager


Journal Article (Letter)

© 2015 Optical Society of America. High-resolution, wide-field-of-view photography has undergone substantial improvements since the advent of multiscale lens design. Here, we present and evaluate a multiscale camera capable of a 10 μrad instantaneous field of view over a 36° field of view. We experimentally verify this camera’s optical performance at the individual microcamera level and report a 2.4 gigapixel panorama stitched from five snapshots. The results are consistent with the use of parallel camera arrays to produce scalable imagery at a substantial resolution range.
