We give an overview of the SIXTE software package, a generic, mission-independent Monte Carlo simulation toolkit for X-ray astronomical instrumentation. The package is based on modular approach for the source definition, the description of the optics, and the detector type such that new missions can be easily implemented. The targets to be simulated are stored in a flexible input format, called SIMPUT. Based on this source definition, a sample of photons is produced and then propagated through… Expand
