MAXI (Monitor of All-sky X-ray Image) is a payload on board the International Space Station, and will be launched on April 2009. We report on the current development status on MAXI, in particular on the two types of X-ray camera (GSC and SSC), and the simulation results of the MAXI observation. SSC is a CCD camera. The moderate energy resolution enables us to detect the various emission peak including 0.5 keV oxygen line. The averaged energy resolution at the CCD temperature of -70 deg is 144.5 eV (FWHM) for 5.9 keV X-ray. GSC includes proportional gas counters, which have large X-ray detection area (5350cm2). The averaged position resolution of 1.1mm at 8 keV enable us to determined the celestial position of bright sources within the accuracy of 0.1 degree. The simulation study involving the results of performance test exhibits the high sensitivity of MAXI as designed.
