Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the development of a high resolution, hard x-ray telescope for imaging hard x-rays generated by energetic electrons accelerated in solar flares. We discuss the particular requirements of a hard x-ray telescope intended for solar observations, our approach to meeting these requirements, and progress made to date.
