Description

The JEM-EUSO Atmospheric Monitoring System (AMS) consists of a bi-spectral Infrared Camera and a LIDAR device that are being fully designed under space qualification to fulfil the scientific requirements of this space mission. An understanding of the atmospheric conditions in the Field of View (FoV) of the telescope is mandatory for a space-based mission which aims to detect Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Rays (UHECR) and Extremely-High Energy Cosmic Rays (EHECR) from Space using the Earth's atmosphere as calorimeter. In this work the steps of the simulation and reconstruction processes in the Offline framework are explained. The relevant modules developed for the calibration, simulation and reconstruction tasks of the images from the Infrared camera including its configuration options are discused. This presentation represents the status of the JEM-EUSO Infrared camera modules as implemented in Offline.
