The Parallel form of the code for a Monte Carlo simulation of a balloon borne γ-ray telescope is considered. The simulation was written using the EGS4 package developed at Stanford Linear Accelerator Centre and was modified and executed on a transpoter array. A large elapsed time speed-up has been achieved with this system. Further speed-up is possible by simple hardware enhancements with negligible modification to the software.
