Description
The scientific objectives of the Ulysses solar X-ray/cosmic gamma-ray burst
experiment and the unique features of the Ulysses mission which will help to
achieve them are described in Hurley, et al (1992). After a discussion of the
special design constraints imposed by the mission, we describe the sensor
systems, consisting of two CsI scintillators and two Si surface barrier
detectors covering the energy range 5 keV-150 keV. Their operating modes and
inflight performance are also given.

1992)
