General-purpose Monte-Carlo radiation tranport calculation code PHITS is applied to calculate prompt gamma-ray emission from cosmic-ray heavy ions fragmented in the atmosphere. Event-by-event simulation of spallation reactions by cosmic-ray heavy ions was performed by combination of three reaction models, responsible for different reaction phases.
