Large Area Telescope

Precision Tracker (TKR):
single-sided silicon strip particle detectors and convertersarranged in 18 x,y tracking planes, providing precision determinations of photon direction;
Calorimeter (CAL):
finely segmented array of Csl (TI) crystals, read out by PIN diodes for energy measurement and precise shower localization;
Anticoincidence detector:
array of plastic scintillator tiles covering TKR, read out bywaveshifting fibers and PMTs;
Modular Design:
TKR and CAL composed of 16 identical tower modules, providing redundancy. Each tower includes an independent data acquisition board (DAQ) to implement level-1 and level-2 triggering and data capture
