Fermi

Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope
(formerly Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope "GLAST")

The Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (Fermi) is a new high-energy Gamma-ray mission to identify and study Nature's highest energy particle accelerators. Fermi is designed to operate in the energy range from 10 keV to 300 GeV. Fermi will have a factor of more than 30 improvement in sensitivity over the Energetic Gamma Ray Experiment Telescope (EGRET) onboard the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory (CGRO).
In addition to the Gamma-ray detectors, a Gamma-ray burst monitor is part of the satellite. This burst monitor is built in close cooperation with MPE.
