Abstract

We present experimental results of imaging and digital superresolution in a multiaperture miniature folded imaging architecture called PANOPTES. We prove the feasibility of integrating a low f-number folded imagers within a steerable multiaperture framework while maintaining a thin profile. Stringent requirements including low f-number and compact form factor, combined with the need for an ability to steer individual fields of view necessitate an off-axis design, resulting in a plane symmetric optical system. We present a detailed description of the ensuing optical design and its performance. The feasibility of this architecture is demonstrated through experiments and preliminary reconstruction results.
