[26.14] A Wide Field of View X-Ray Telescope for GLAST

William Zhang, Kevin Black, Philip Deines-Jones, Stanley Hunter, Keith Jahoda, Greg Madejski, Andrew Peele, Robert Petre, Nicholas White (Goddard Space Flight Center)

We propose as a secondary instrument on the GLAST mission a wide field of view X-ray telescope to enhance its capability of doing blazar science. This telescope will complement GLAST's gamma-ray band (20 MeV - 300 GeV) with an X-ray band (0.5 - 5 keV). It will have a comparably large field of view as the gamma-ray telescope. It will enable cross-correlating of X-ray and gamma-ray variability. In this poster we will present our design and its scientific capabilities and how these capabilities will enhance the expected scientific return of the GLAST mission.
