Paper Abstract

A method is outlined for performing out-of-field rejection predictions using hand calculator methods and small computer programs. This method is useful in getting quick rejection estimates in the formative stages of a design, when detailed baffle design is not complete. General methods of obtaining point source scattering results in a reimaging optical system are outlined. Useful approximations are described, along with their derivation. The integration of point source values to obtain earth background values is then described.
