Abstract

We describe the mission opportunity, the science case, the instrument concept and the preliminary expected performances of the GRB/all-sky X-ray monitor proposed by an Italian collaboration for the inclusion in the scientific payload of the MIRAX X-ray astrophysics mission, which will fly in 2015 on board the Brazilian satellite Lattes.
