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. In addition, the framework also includes a mechanism to connect and control data processing modules that are developed independently and data communication channels among them, which has been technically proven by simulations and analysis of the Suzaku HXD, many other detectors and astrophysical issues.
