Abstract
The STARLAB satellite telescope will use four advanced high performance detectors, operating on the Intensified Photon Counting CCD Array principle. The operation of the detectors is summarized. The baseline design is presented. This design has to meet stringent electro-optic performance specifications while addressing the electronic & mechanical requirements of a large unit operating in space. The tasks being undertaken to develop the detector are outlined, including design, construction & test of prototype detectors, the development of a computer simulation of the detector & supporting technology studies. The detector has the flexibility to be applied to a variety of ground-based & space projects.
