A new calibration method for multi-detector telescopes designed to identify energetic ions in the 10MeV-1GeV energy range is presented. This method uses a simple and fast numerical technique to compare data from calibration experiment on accelerator with data from Monte Carlo simulation of the same experiment. Besides, a numerical technique that relates calibration parameters of successive detectors is presented as well. The quality of the method is tested with experimental data.
