[ascl:2204.007] RTS: Radio Transient Simulations

Radio Transient Simulations uses Monte-Carlo simulations to accurately determine transient rates in radio surveys. The user inputs either a real or simulated observational setup, and the simulations code calculates transient rate as a function of transient duration and peak flux. These simulations allow for simulating a wide variety of scenarios including observations with varying sensitivities and durations, multiple overlapping telescope pointings, and a wide variety of light curve shapes with the user having the ability to easily add more. Though the current scientific focus is on the radio regime, the simulations code can be easily adapted to other wavelength regimes.
