The Multi-Spectral Solar Telescope Array was launched on April 30th, 2002 on a Terrier-boosted Black Brant at White Sands Missile Range. It used an array of multilayer-coated Ritchey-Chretien telescopes to image the solar corona at 150 , 171 , 180 , 195 and 211 . High-resolution chromospheric spectroheliograms at 1216 and 1550 were also obtained. We present the results of the mission and report on the status of the image calibration, as well as early analysis of active region loops using MSSTA data.
