Paper Abstract

Optical problems which arose during final integration and testing of the DIRBE instrument in the closed flight dewar before launch are discussed. Simulation based on the optical breadboard and engineering unit components showed that these problems (stray light signals) originated outside the instrument in the dewar dome lid. Excellent performance of the instrument confirmed this fact.
