SimMETIS

SimMETIS is the data simulator for METIS. It is an adaptation of the ELT/Micado data simulator SimCADO. In the current version (v0.2), released on 21 December 2018, it supports all L, M and N band imaging modes as well as the IFU modes. Long-slit modes will be supported in the near future.

SimMETIS simulations of a radiation-driven wind in a nearby, faint AGN. (Schartmann et al. 2014, MNRAS, 445, 3878). The total exposure time was 1 hour and the rows show variations of the inclination angle, while the columns show different Eddington ratios (from 1%, to 10% to 20%).
