AREMBES (Athena Radiation Environment Models and x-ray Background Effects Simulator) is an ESA contract that foresees the development of a software simulator based on Geant4, capable of addressing all the background issues that the ATHENA mission will experience during its lifetime, together with the development of improved environment models for the L2 halo orbit radiation. The project, that...

To estimate the influence of radiation environment, performance of critical detectors and radiation damage, event by event simulation methods are necessary for space-based telescope development. In this presentation an outline of space-based mission in IHEP is given, which emphasize on the Geant4 analysis performed in support of the performance estimate, detector responses, shielding optimize...
8. The BoGEMMS simulation of the AGILE mission and its benefits to future gamma-ray space telescopes.
Dr Valentina Fioretti (INAF/IASF Bologna)
The accuracy of Monte Carlo simulations in reproducing the scientific performance of space telescopes (e.g. angular resolution) is mandatory for a correct design of the mission. This is particularly the case of gamma-ray Compton and pair production trackers, where the reconstruction of the primary photon energy and direction requires the full physical understanding of the particle tracks....

Einstein Probe (EP) is a proposed small scientific satellite dedicated to time-domain astrophysics working in the soft X-ray band. It will discover transients and monitor variable objects in 0.5-4 keV, for which it will employ a very large instantaneous field-of-view (60o × 60o). Gravitational Waves will be its one of the important objectives. EP has two kinds of payloads including a...
Mr Pablo Portillo (Instituto Nacional de Técnica Aeroespacial)
The modelling of X-ray micropore optics have raised a considerable interest, in the framework of some recent and future missions like BepiColombo or the next X-ray observatory ATHENA, in order to not only help during design phases but also provide a precise knowledge of the low-energy particle focusing on the focal plane detectors. As a first step, we have fully simulated the BepiColombo...
