Abstract
The Extreme Universe Space Observatory (EUSO) is a wide angle refractive telescope in near-ultraviolet wavelength region to detect extremely high energy cosmic rays by observing time-resolved air-fluorescence images of the extensive air showers from the International Space Station. The focal surface detector of the EUSO is designed to be a mosaic of multianode photomultipliers to realize the single photoelectron counting capability. We describe the current status of the conceptual design and the feasibility study of the focal surface of the EUSO telescope.
