Large area gas micro-structure detectors are being developed for the next generation high-energy gamma-ray telescope as part of NASA’s SR&T program to support new technologies. These low-cost detectors are produced by laser micromachining of metalized polyimide films layered on carbon fiber composite substrates. This integrated detector and support design reduces the detector complexity and associated assembly costs. Accomplishments to date include testing of a 32 channel ASIC for the front-end electronics and integration of functional hardware into prototype detectors for tests of the FPGA readout system and event display software.
