The OIFITS simulator is a tool to assist in observation planning or in reconstructed image artifact analysis. The program has the ability to either (1) simulate the data from an interferometer given a list of observational hour angles and a FITS image of what the source looks like, or (2) copy the UV coverage of an existing observation and simulate the data given a FITS image of the source

oifits-sim is developed by Brian Kloppenborg of Georgia State University and distributed under an open source (GPL v3) license. If you encounter bugs, please file a report on the issue tracker. If you have specific requests for additional features, models, or other enhancements, please send an email To Brian (contact information on the oifits-sim project page).
