[17.11] The FiberGLAST instrument concept for the GLAST mission

Geoffrey N. Pendleton, William S. Paciesas, R. Marc Kippen, Robert, S. Mallozzi, Surasak Phengchamnan (UAH), FiberGLAST Team

FiberGLAST is one of several main instrument concepts under development for NASA's Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST) mission. Operating in the energy range from 10 MeV to 300 GeV, the detector will achieve a sensitivity more than 10 times better than EGRET, with a field of view extending to ~80 degrees from the detector axis. We present an overview of the instrument concept highlighting the particular scientific goals emphasized by the fiberGLAST design.
