Abstract : A holographic optical element structure which corrects the aberrated waveform that has passed through an ogive shaped sensor window. The corrected waveform will have the same structure as if it had passed through a hemispherical window. Such structure allows one to replace the nose of a laser designator, (hemispherical) with an ogive shaped nose without the loss of optical performance. (Author)
