MGEANT - A GEANT-Based Multi-Purpose Simulation Package
for Gamma-Ray Astronomy Missions
S.J. Sturner, H. Seifert, C. Shrader
We present a multi-purpose simulation package based on GEANT and the CERN
Program Library. This package allows for the rapid prototyping of
a wide variety of gamma-ray detector systems. The two main advantages of this package
over standard GEANT simulations are 1) the detector geometry and material data
are supplied via input files instead of being hard coded and 2) MGEANT has
several built in spectral and beam options including the ability to simulate
observations with multiple pointings and diffuse sources. We are currently
using MGEANT to produce detailed observation simulations and
response matrices for INTEGRAL/SPI. This software package is available from
our website http://lheawww.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/gamcosray/legr/integral/ .
