Abstract
Recent results obtained by balloon and satellite borne coded-mask instruments have been used to simulate the imaging performance of MART-LIME, a coded mask telescope to be flown on board the international observatory SPECTRUM-X-GAMMA on 1995. In particular, we discuss a 6x6 square degree field-of-view centered on the hard X-Ray source responsible for the high energy emission from Galactic Center, at energies above 30 keV. The contributions of GX1+4, GRS1758-25, Terzan 2, Tr 1741-322 and GX354-0 to this field-of-view are also considered. Deconvolved images obtained via the cross-correlation technique are presented. From these images, the limiting sensitivity of the telescope in a crowded sky field is correctly determined.
