This paper reports the results of digital simulations of low level infrared (IR) signal processing/detection techniques in the presence of zodiacal light background. The study investigates the applicability of pulse shape discrimination techniques to the detection of IR signals where the fast rising target signal pulses are superimposed on slowly varying background. The quantities that characterize the techniques are defined. An improvement of signal-to-background ratio is the essential advantage in applying the new concept.
