Abstract: In 1995, the Russian Spectrum Roentgen Gamma (SRG) satellite will be launched. The satellite contains several Xray telescopes, among which are the SODART telescope, developed by the Danish Space Research Institute, IKI Moscow, and NASA among others. DSRI provides 4 Position Sensitive Proportional Counters (PSPC) detectors (called HEPC and LEPC) in the focal plane of the SODART mirror module. PROS, the Xray analysis package under IRAF, developed by SAO initially to reduce ROSAT and Einstein data, has now been extended to support reduction of data from the HEPC/LEPC detectors on-board SRG. The poster presents the results of the reduction of simulated HEPC/LEPC data.
