Generation from In-Orbit Data

It is not expected to update these CCF files on the short term, neither is there a dedicated calibration activity. However on the longterm it will be possible to estimate the diffuse background components (DGL and Zodiacal light). Background levels of individual science observations can be stored as function of galactic longitude and latitude (l,b), the helioecliptic coordinates $\lambda-\lambda_\bigodot, \beta,$ and filter passband. The two background components can be disentangled in this 5-dimensional data-space.
