Abstract. The problem of designing optical system with free-form elements is considered. A modification of the light energy mapping method for design of optical system for aviation obstruction lights of low inten-sity is proposed. An algorithm for calculating optical elements for such devices is described. Results of calculation and virtual prototyping of the device, carried out according to the proposed method, are pre-sented.
Keywords: non-imaging optics, free-form surfaces, obstruction light, lighting engineering, optical simulations
