Paper Abstract

A PEARLSS (Particulate Effects Analysis on Response Levels of Spaceborne Sensors) approach is presented with particular attention given to the code structure and on-going code developments. PEARLSS is a system response simulation which models the degradation of sensor performance due to particulates in the near field-of-view and deposited on optical surfaces. This flexible, modular code is aimed at performing parametric studies on design parameters including sunshade geometry, system materials, temperatures, prelaunch cleanliness levels, and pointing directions.
