This paper demonstrates that it is expedient to use two-dimensional radiation-detector arrays to solve the one-dimensional problem of measuring a plane angle. This assumption is illustrated by a theoretical analysis of the well-known nonmisadjustable optical system of a turning-angle sensor based on a collimator with an annular field. A specific example of such a sensor is considered.
