Abstract
A new IDL code for simulations of observation made with an Integral Field Spectrograph attached to an adaptive optics system is here presented in detail. It is conceived to support CHEOPS, a high contrast imaging instrument for exo-planets detection. The aim of this sofware is to achieve simulated images and spectra considering realistic values of speckle noise, Adaptive Optics corrections and the specific instrumental features. This code can help us in particular to simulate close binary systems or exo-planetary system, in order to find the limit of detectability of faint objects using simultaneous differential imaging.
