Abstract

Monitor of All-sky X-ray Image (MAXI) will be launched and attached on the International Space Station (ISS) next year. MAXI scans the sky while ISS goes around the Earth and provides an all sky X-ray image every orbit. MAXI has two types of X-ray instruments: gas-proportional counters for 2-30 keV and CCD cameras for 0.5-10 keV. MAXI will be able to transmit alerts to the Internet on X-ray transients including bright X-ray afterglows.
