We present the source imaging performance of the AGILE Satellite in the hard X-ray (10–40 keV) and gamma-ray (30 MeV–50 GeV) energy bands. The AGILE instrument will combine state-of-the-art Silicon detection technology for gamma-ray imaging (Gamma-Ray Imaging Detector-GRID) with a coded-mask imager sensitive in the hard X-ray band (Super-AGILE). AGILE is designed to reduce the uncertainty in gamma-ray source localization to the level of a few arcminutes, depending on the source intensity, spectrum and background properties. The AGILE Event Simulator (AEV) is a tool to generate gamma-ray images taking into account the proper instrument characteristics. We present preliminary results obtained with AEV for several astrophysical sources.
- Gamma ray imaging
- Cosmic gamma ray sources
- Cosmic X-ray sources
- Hard X-ray sources
- Gamma rays
