The EIDOS gamma-ray Imager has been proposed in response to the INTEGRAL Announcement of Opportunity issued on the 1st July 1994. Through a combination of different detector technologies, it provides high-quality imaging of celestial gamma-ray sources in the energy range between 20 keV and 10 MeV combined with high continuum sensitivity, high sensitivity to both narrow and broadened gammaray lines and good spectral resolution. The instrument also offers sensitive polarimetry of gamma-ray sources. The scientific objectives of this instrument are vast and range from studies of themost compact Galactic objects through to the structure of the Galaxy and on to active galactic nuclei. Careful attention has been taken to ensure that the design of the EIDOS Imager is compatible with the mission requirement for a Galactic Plane Survey.
