Paper Abstract

We are developing a rocket-borne, imaging, wide-field, survey experiment to study global interactions in the multiphase interstellar medium. The experiment will map diffuse C IV (C3+) (lambda) 1549, H2 (lambda) (lambda) 1575 - 1645 Lyman band fluorescence, and dust-scattered starlight continuum ((lambda) (lambda) 1400 - 1900) emission over one quarter of the sky in a single rocket flight. Good imaging is maintained in two dimensions, permitting the direct exclusion of stars entering the field of view. The payload consists of four independent, co-aligned telescopes of identical optical construction. Three telescopes are made sensitive in a narrow band by depositing tuned all-dielectric multilayers on the mirror surfaces to achieve a so-called `self-filtering' camera. Each telescope incorporates a large-format imaging microchannel plate detector that is read out using a two- dimensional, crossed, serpentine delay line anode which we have developed. The rocket flight, scheduled for launch in 1994, will be the first flight of a two-dimensional, crossed, serpentine delay line anode.
