Athena Point Source simulator

This is a simulator pipeline intended first for the simulation of Compton-thick AGN observed with Athena. It can easily be adapted to other science cases and missions.

Requirements

SIXTE, SIMPUT and Xspec installed and loaded.

Python modules:

  • astropy
  • numpy
  • matplotlib

How to use

$ make obsplot.pdf

TODO

  • replace createspectrum.py with a athena pipeline tool.
  • attach xspec/BXA fitting as a task
