Abstract : An optical design study was undertaken with the objective of conceiving and proving feasibility of an optical system which would provide a 25 degree binocular field of view for a head-up cockpit display. This activity has been successfully completed and thoroughly documented in earlier reports. During this program it became apparent that additional study was necessary to determine the feasibility of achieving the ellipsoidal shaped components which are essential to the development and demonstration of this system. This report describes the many techniques which were investigated and evaluated. The main benefit derived from this activity is that the method for generating the ellipsoid component is now defined, and the course of future development activity may be planned in a realistic manner.
