Abstract

The CALorimetric Electron Telescope, CALET, mission is proposed for the Japanese Experiment Module Exposure Facility of the International Space Station. Major goals of the mission are precise measurements of the electrons in a few GeV - 10 TeV and the gamma-rays in 100 MeV - several TeV, keeping an energy resolution of a few % over 100 GeV. From the measurements, a systematic investigation of high-energy electromagnetic process in universe will be performed. A detection of SUSY particle which is a candidate of the dark matter would also be expected. The detector is composed of an imaging calorimeter of scintillating fibers and a total absorption calorimeter. Total thickness of the absorber is 45 r.l for electro-magnetic particles and 2.1 m.f.p for protons. Total weight of the payload is nearly 2,200 kg, and the effective geometrical factor should be ∼ 1.0 M2sr. The hadron rejection power can be 106 for electrons.
