Abstract
Two sounding rocket experiments designed to study celestial sources of radiation between 100 and 1000 A are described. The Wolter-Schwarzschild Type II grazing incidence mirrors in the experiments have been built by the diamond turning technique and have achieved one arcminute resolution. Design considerations and fabrication procedures for each are discussed. The first, a survey instrument, has been flown once. The second, a spectroscopic instrument, is being readied for launch in summer 1977.
