Paper Abstract

We present the design and realization of the AMBER data simulator. This tool provides the AMBER team with: (1) a way to test the performance and sensitivity of AMBER wrt. external parameters (e.g., observed source magnitude, AO correction); (2) a means to validate proposed visibility retrieval algorithms; and (3) a mean to obtain realistic data flows to test and implement the AMBER data reduction software.
