We are developing and testing a high resolution, large area gamma ray telescope to be employed in a space based environment. The new concept in the telescope design is the combination of liquid and gas drift chambers with scintillation detectors for imaging and tracking the secondary particles generated by the gammas with a very high angular and energy resolution. The telescope consists of a Liquid Argon Converter, an Argon-Methane Gas Drift Chamber, and a Liquid Argon Calorimeter, and has an event by event processing and decision making feature.
