with participation of the Netherlands Agency for Aereospace Programs. It was
launched on April 30 1996 from Cape Canaveral and operated for 6 years.
It was the first X-ray mission with a scientific payload covering more
than three decades of energy - from 0.1 to 300 keV - with a relatively large effective
area, medium energy resolution and imaging capabilities in the range of 0.1-10 keV.
Lifetime : 30 April 1996 - 30 April 2002
Energy Range : 0.1 - 300 keV
Special Features : Broad-band energy
