AIRY is a modular software package designed to simulate optical and near-infrared interferometric observations and/or to perform subsequent image restoration/deconvolution. It is written in IDL and has been designed to be used together with the CAOS Application Builder, version 2.0 or higher. AIRY can be applied to a wide range of imaging problems. We will present in particular an application to the case of interferometric imaging with the Large Binocular Telescope, in which we simulate the observation and scientific interpretation of a synthetic star cluster in the near-infrared.
