Two multimirror grazing incidence X-ray telescopes. Both the two coaligned multimirror systems have cooled CCD as X-ray detectors and will provide high angular resolution imaging (20 arcsec HEW at 8 keV) and fine spectroscopy (2% at 7 keV).
SODART, two multimirror grazing incidence X-ray telescopes. Different focal plane detectors are present: the Low Energy Proportional Counter (LEPC, 0.2-8 keV) and High Energy Proportional Counter (HEPC, 2-25 keV), the Solid State Spectrometer Array (SIXA, 0.5-20 keV), the Objective Crystal Spectrometer (OXS, 5 energy bands depending on the chosen crystal covering 0.15-7.4 keV) and the Complex of focal X-ray detectors (KFRD ) consisting of two indipendent position sensitive spectrometers (2-25 keV), as well as the Stellar X-ray Polarimeter (SXRP) consisting of a Bragg reflection based and a Thomson scattering based instruments. The angular resolution of imaging is dominated by the mirror shells and is of order 3 arcmin.
MART-LIME is sensitive to energies in the hard X-ray range 5-150keV with an efficiency higher than 10%. The field of view is 6 by 6 square degree; the angular resolution is 8.6 arcmin.
Three coaligned ultraviolet telescopes that will image the same 0.9 degree field from 140 to 300nm, using different filters. TAUVEX will be able to detect point sources with a monocromatic UV magnitude of 19 in three broad-band-filter in 4 hour.
Consists of two normal incidence telescopes for far ultraviolet in the energy range between 91.2 nm and 120 nm.
Consists of an array of 6 X-ray pinhole cameras (one face of a cube), sensitive from 2 to 25 keV, which views the whole sky, except for a 6 by 6 degree patch which includes the Sun.
