Paper Abstract

We present an overview of the Extended X-ray Off-Plane Spectrometer (EXOS) Sounding Rocket Payload based at the University of Colorado, Boulder. The program includes a total of four launches over the next four years on various x-ray sources. The payload utilizes off-plane reflection gratings and Gaseous Electron Multiplier (GEM) detectors in order to achieve both high throughput and resolution (R~100).
