Paper Abstract

HIREX is a suite of three complementary solar-pointed instruments that is being proposed to NASA under the NASA MIDEX announcement of opportunity. The main instrument is a 0.6m clear aperture, 240m effective focal length normal incidence XUV telescope operated at 171 angstrom, with a spatial resolution of 0.01 inch. This main telescope is complemented by two other instruments: 1) a 0.3 m context telescope that images in a wavelength range that covers the UV and XUV spectral regime, based on the TRACE design. This context telescope places the high magnification, limited field of view images created by the high resolution telescope in both spatial and temperature context. 2) A spectrometer covering the spectral range from 170-220 angstrom, based on the SERTS design.
