Upcoming High Energy Astrophysics Missions

  • Astro-H (formerly known as NeXT) - 0.3-80 keV (imaging), 50-300 keV (non-imaging), 0.3-10 keV high-resolution spectroscopy [More] (Early 2016)
  • ASTROSAT - 0.3-80 keV (imaging), 10-150 keV (coded mask), 2-10 keV All-Sky monitor [More] (October 2015)
  • DAMPE - Dark Matter Particle Explorer - will measure electrons and photons with much higher energy resolution and energy reach than achievable with existing space experiments in order to identify possible Dark Matter signatures, and will also advance the understanding of the origin and propagation mechanism of high energy cosmic rays, as well make new discoveries in high energy gamma astronomy (November 2015)
  • HXMT - 3-30 keV (imaging), 20-200 keV (direct demodulation imaging) [More] (Mid to Late 2016)
  • Lomonosov - includes gamma-ray burst detector and cosmic ray instrument [More] (2015 or later)
  • NICER - concentrator optics, sub-microsecond timing [More] (August 2016)
  • Spectrum-Roengten-Gamma (SRG) including eROSITA - 0.5-11 keV (all-sky survey), up to 30 keV pointed follow-up observations [More] (December 2016)
