sensimagesetyes(list of) file name(s)sensimage.fits 
Name of sensitivity image(s). One for outunit=rate or flux, two for outunit=both
outunitnostringraterate | flux | both
Produce sensitivity maps in rate units (cts s$^{-1}$) and/or flux units (erg cm$^{-2}$ s$^{-1}$)
ecfnolist of floats1.00.00001$<$ecf$<$1 000.0
Energy conversion factors in units of $10^{11}$ cts cm$^2$ erg$^{-1}$ to be used for sensitivity maps in flux units
Detection likelihood for which the upper limit of the source counts is calculated. Corresponds to the parameters likemin of eboxdetect and mlmin of emldetect
statisticnostringpoissonpoisson | deltac
Switch between eboxdetect-like Poissonian statistic (faster) and emldetect-like DeltaC-statistic and PSF reading (slower)
energiesnolist of floats10001$<$param$<$30 000
DeltaC statistic: Mid-band energies to read the PSF, one per input image
doffnofloat121$<$doff$<$1 200
DeltaC statistic: Step size of the PSF off-axis angles in arcsec
DeltaC statistic: Half side length of the area in which the PSF is evaluated (image pixels)
