Abstract
This paper summarizes the findings of the Next Generation Space Telescope (NGST) Detector Requirements Review Panel. This panel was comprised of NGST Integrated Science Instrument Module study representatives, detector specialists, and members of the NGST project science team. It has produced a report that recommends detector performance levels, and has provided rationale for deriving these levels from basic, anticipated NGST science goals and programs. Key parameters such as detector array format, quantum efficiency, and noise are discussed and prioritized.
