Abstract

Japan's 6th X-ray satellite mission NeXT has completed pre-Phase-A study, and is waiting to advance to Phase-A/B. The X-Ray Telescope System on board NeXT covers wide energy range from 0.3 to 80 keV. The paper reviews current status on design and technology of the mission as written in the NeXT Mission Proposal on Oct. 2005.
