The AGILE scientific instrument is based on an innovative design based on three detecting systems: (1) a Silicon Tracker, (2) a Mini-Calorimeter, and (3) an ultralight coded mask system with Si-detectors (Super-AGILE). AGILE is designed to provide: (1) excellent imaging in the energy bands 30 MeV–50 GeV (5–10 arcmin for intense sources) and 10–40 keV (1–3 arcmin); (2) optimal timing capabilities, with independent readout systems and minimal deadtimes for the Silicon tracker, Super-AGILE and Mini-Calorimeter; (3) large fields of view for the gamma-ray imaging detector (∼3 sr) and Super-AGILE (∼1 sr).
