Abstract
ABRIXAS stands for 'A Broadband Imaging X-ray All-Sky Survey'. Its launch is scheduled for spring 1999, it shall perform, thanks to its special design, an efficient all-sky survey at high photon energies, thus continuing ROSATs successful work in an extended energy band. We will report here about the design and development activities for the ABRIXAS Mirror System.
