Paper Abstract

Detecting weak targets in the presence of a strong backgroud or an out of field source requires an optical system that can reject unwanted signals. Properly designed baffles can prevent unwanted energy from reaching a focal plane or detector. To illustrate basic baffle design techniques and resulting benefits, the stray radiation analysis of a typical heat seeking missle is presented.
