Description The PAMELA experiment consists of a magnetic spectrometer, a transition radi-ation detector, an electromagnetic imaging calorimeter with a shower-tail catcher and a scintillator-based time-of- ight system. It will be launched late 2002 / early 2003. The spectrometer is surrounded by a scintillator-based anticoincidence sys-tem consisting of four lateral and one top anticounter which will help in discrim-inating against out-of-acceptance triggers. A simulation study has been made to determine how backscattering from the calorimeter aects the capability to reject background events.
