Paper Abstract

EUVITA, an array of eight extreme UV imaging telescopes with normal incidence reflection multilayer coated mirrors with central wavelengths of the individual telescopes between 50 and 250 A, is discussed. The scientific objectives of the EUVITA program are summarized and the instrument configuration and sensitivity are described. The detector electrons and command and the data handling system are briefly addressed.
