For a given pointing, the simulator then works out the per-station compound beam gain in the direction of every source in the model, and evaluates a RIME that gives the resulting visibilities, which are written to a CASA-format Measurement Set (MS), which can then be imaged using standard tools (CASA or lwimager).
