Paper Abstract

We describe a rocket-borne X-ray Objective Grating Spectrograph designed to measure the spectra of cosmic sources in the 8 Å to 60 Å region with a spectral resolution of 100. Experience gained in fabricating the payload is discussed and preliminary performance data obtained in the laboratory and at the Marshall Space Flight Center are presented.
