MIRaGe = Multi Instrument Ramp Generator
This repository contains code that can be used to generate simulated NIRCam, NIRISS, or FGS data. These data can be in one of two formats:
raw - No calibrations applied. Detector level effects such as non-linearity,
superbias, etc are still present.
linearized - Detector level effects have been removed, and data have been
linearized, but are still in ramp format, where multiple non-destructive
reads of the detector are present.
Installation and Documentation
The main documentation for Mirage is located on ReadTheDocs.
Please find detailed installation instructions on our ReadTheDocs page.
See the notebooks in the
examples subdirectory. There are notebooks
for imaging simulations, WFSS simulations, moving target
(non-sidereal) simulations, and simulations of OTE commissioning.
If you find this package useful, please consider citing the Zenodo record using the DOI badge above. Please find additional citation instructions in CITATION.

The following is a bare bones example of a best work flow for contributing to the project:
- Create a fork off of the
- Make a local clone of your fork.
- Ensure your personal fork is pointing
- Create a branch on that personal fork.
- Make your software changes.
- Push that branch to your personal GitHub repository (i.e.
- On the
miragerepository, create a pull request that merges the branch into
- Assign a reviewer from the team for the pull request.
- Iterate with the reviewer over any needed changes until the reviewer accepts and merges your branch.
- Delete your local copy of your branch.
