An optical system using spherical and cylindrical optics can convert area-modulated spatial sinusoidal targets to intensity-modulated spatial sinusoidal images. A specific system was analyzed with a spot diagram. System response to 30 cycles-mm~l is predicted. The system mechanical tolerances were determined on the basis of modulation transfer function (MTF) calculations. A mechanical structure which would maintain these tolerances was designed and built.
