Abstract: In this paper we present the Chandra Ray Tracer (ChaRT), a distributed remote-computing application developed by the Chandra X-Ray Center (CXC) to simulate the High Resolution Mirror Assembly (HRMA) Point Spread Functions (PSFs). We will discuss the overall system architecture and the programmatic flow. This approach may be used as a prototype for other projects where either the software cannot be distributed and/or the system resources required to run the software would be prohibitive for the general user.
