Authors: Shupe, D.

Abstract: The Wide-Field Infrared Explorer (WIRE) is a cryogenically-cooled spaceborne telescope designed to study the evolution of starburst galaxies...We describe the design and implementation of the simulator, with particular emphasis on the generation of point-spread functions. The simulator is written in C for use on Unix workstations, and we assess its performance. Sample raw and combined images are displayed, and the image processing steps are outlined. The uses of the simulator to verify that mission requirements are met, to optimize observing strategy, and to test data analysis techniques are also described.
