Paper Abstract

Initial results are presented of a program designed to experimentally verify the APART (Analysis Pro-gram Arizona Radiation Trace) stray radiation analysis computer program. This computer program was developed by the University of Arizona under contract to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and in support of NASA's Space Telescope Project. New experimental techniques were developed to measure the stray radiation rejection performance of a fifty centimeter aperture telescope model. The resulting experimental data is compared to computed data generated by an analysis of the telescope model utilizing the APART stray radiation analysis computer program.
