Abstract

The CALET(CALorimetric Electron Telescope) is a detector planned to be on board the JEM-EF(Exposed Facility of Japanese Experiment Module) of the International Space Station to investigate high energy universe by observing high energy gamma-rays, electrons and hadronic cosmic rays. The main part of CALET is composed of an IMaging Calorime- ter(IMC), a Total AbSorption Calorimeter(TASC), SIlicon Array(SIA) and Anti-Coincidence Detector(ACD). Monte Carlo simulation has been carried out to obtain basic performance of CALET on orbit.
