Paper Abstract

The APART/PADE (Arizona's Paraxial Analysis of Radiation Transfer/Program for the Analysis of Diffracted Energy) code is a deterministic stray radiation analysis program capable of yielding quantitative descriptions of systems along with providing insight about the propagation paths. The program can be used to determine the image plane distribution due to external point sources, external extended sources such as the Earth, and for internally emitted radiation. The inclusion of the PADE program allows not only pure diffraction paths to be evaluated but also mixed modes of diffraction and scatter in any order. The program handles a large class of asymmetrical optical sensors and is designed to be most efficient with rotationally symmetric systems. Many additional related features of the program are discussed.
