Abstract: MIRISim is the simulator package for the Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI) on the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). MIRISim simulates photon propagation through MIRI and delivers detector images consistent with the expected on-orbit performance. The simulated data have the same format as the uncalibrated ramp data that will be made available to JWST observers, and include all metadata required for processing with the JWST Science Calibration pipeline. MIRISim was publicly released in 2018 as part of an Anaconda Python environment and is available at
