Abstract
We present the performance of a 200mm × 200mm microchannel plate detector during two suborbital flights in 2017 and 2018. The detector utilized ALD boro-silicate plates and a cross delay line readout. Background counts inflight were between 1.43 count/cm2/s. The quantum efficiency after two years and two flights was consistent with preflight measurements.
