Abstract

We are developing an ASTRO-H data analysis framework with the Geant4-based Monte Carlo simulation core, and numerical models of the on-orbit environmental radiation and full-satellite mass structure. The framework uses not only Geant4 but also a traditional X-ray mirror ray-Tracing simulator, and a file format compatible with the SimX simulator for input and output of celestial body information. The data exchange between the framework and the external software is based on FITS files, which makes it easy to record and trace the internal steps of the whole simulation framework.
