Paper Abstract

We are developing a Monitoring X-Ray Experiment (MOXE) for the Soviet Spectrum-X-Gamma Mission. MOXE is an X-ray all-sky monitor based on array of pinhole cameras, to be provided via a collaboration between Goddard Space Flight Center and Los Alamos National Laboratory. Our objectives are 1) to alert other observers on Spectrum-X-Gamma and other platforms of interesting transient activity, and 2) to synoptically monitor the X-ray sky and study long-term changes in X-ray binaries. MOXE will be sensitive to sources as faint as 2 milliCrab (56) in 1 day, and cover the 2-20 keV band.
