Author Affiliations +
eROSITA (extended ROentgen Survey with an Imaging Telescope Array) is the core instrument on the Russian/German Spektrum-Roentgen-Gamma (SRG) mission which is now officially scheduled for launch on September 2017, eROSITA will perform a deep survey of the entire X-ray sky. Within the first 4 years of the mission the sky will be scanned 8 times. In the soft band (0.5-2 keV), it will be about 30 times more sensitive than ROSAT, while in the hard band (2-8 keV) it will provide the first ever true imaging survey of the sky. eROSITA is currently (June 2016) in its final integration and test phase. All seven FM Mirror Assemblies and Camera Assemblies (+ 1 spare) have been tested and calibrated. All subsystems and components are well within their expected performances.
