Abstract
The Hard X-ray Modulation Telescope (HXMT) is China’s first astronomical satellite. Based on the Direct Demodulation Method (DDM), it was designed to reconstructs images from data obtained in a scanning mode. Although this project was delayed by about 15 years, it will still bring us merits in some key sciences of observing the galactic transients and measuring the diffuse X-ray emission. This satellite is currently in the phase of flight model production with the expected launch in late 2015.
