We propose an optical imaging system utilizing a pair of MEMS mirrors to achieve a wide field of regard and zooming characteristics. This system is anticipated to meet the challenging constraints put forth in this program: a total field of regard of up to 80 degrees, fast scanning speeds, and up to 5x optical zoom.
