Abstract : A basic and applied research program concerned with multiaperture optics is described. The intent is to explore to what extent the principles of the insect eye can be incorporated into the design of optical instruments. The advantages and disadvantages of multiaperture optics are investigated in the basic part of the program. The applied part of the program was devoted to the design and construction of prototype instruments based on the design information generated du ring the basic part of the program. Keywords: Multiaperture optics, Insect eye, Pattern recognition, Perimetry, Pupil tracker.
