AREMBES (ATHENA Radiation Environment Models and X-Ray Background Effects Simulators) is the new ESA software simulator designed for the ATHENA mission. It is created within the CIRSOS simulation framework to fully address the radiation background issues encountered by Athena and to be adaptable to other future X-ray missions. Within this framework the correct and precise simulation of all...

Mr Benjamin RUARD (Artenum)
The increasing complexity of future commercial missions and space environments of new scientific missions impact more aggressively and deeply the design of next generation space systems, payloads as well as the platforms. The use of COTS components and the mass optimization require a finer modeling of the impact of space environment on spacecraft, especially regarding radiation and internal...

ATHENA (Advanced Telescope for High Energy Astrophysics) is the second large mission in ESA Cosmic Vision 2015-2025, with a launch foreseen in 2028 towards the L2 orbit. The mission addresses the science theme “The Hot and Energetic Universe”, by coupling a high-performance X-ray Telescope with two complementary focal-plane instruments. One of these, the X-ray Integral Field Unit (X-IFU) is a...
