Abstract: The AXAF Science Center group at MIT has developed an end-to-end simulator of the AXAF satellite called MARX. MARX includes models of the AXAF mirrors, the low- and high-energy transmission grating assemblies (LETG and HETG), and the HRC and ACIS focal plane detectors. We discuss the role of MARX within the ASC Data System and present sample simulated images and spectra for two typical cosmic X-ray sources.
