Abstract
The Optical Monitor is an ancillary instrument of the JET-X experiment on board of the satellite SPECTRUM-X-GAMMA. It consists of a Ritchey-Chretien telescope with an aperture of 230 mm, and two CCD detectors. The scientific objectives are the observations in the optical and UV band simultaneously with X-ray observations, the real time identification of X- ray sources with Mv <EQ 22 and detection of their variability, the improvement of the post-facto spacecraft attitude reconstruction (as a backup of the Attitude Monitor), and the serendipitous mode search for microvariability of the bright stars falling in the field of view.
