Abstract : The report documents a significant new optical system analysis tool, the General Unwanted Energy Rejection Analysis Program (GUERAP). This CDC 6600 FORTRAN computer code is able to efficiently and accurately measure the off-axis rejection characteristics of a given optical system or baffle. It is applicable to a wide spectrum of systems, such as radiometers, star trackers and sensors, optical system baffles, optical test chambers, spacecraft sun and Earth shields, etc. In addition to being a powerful off-axis rejection analysis tool, the GUERAP can also be used to evaluate on-axis image quality for most optical systems, including those with very complex geometry, and for the evaluation of the effect of both internal and external emission energy on infrared systems.
