WFIRST Software and Simulation Tools

Software and simulation tools are being developed by various partners on the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) project. The present page lists and provides access to those software tools that were created at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI).

Software and Simulation Tools Summary


complete repository of WFIRST-related software and simulation tools, overseen jointly by IPAC and STScI, is maintained on IPAC's WFIRST website.

Listings of Instrument Reference Information and Current Spacecraft and Instrument Parameters are also maintained by our project partners.
