XTE

Abbrev. for X-ray Timing Explorer, a NASA satellite launched in December 1995 and designed to study variability and broad-band spectra of the brighter cosmic X-ray sources. The main payload consists of a large (6250 cm2) array of proportional counters, sensitive over the 2–60 keV band. Other instruments extend coverage to 200 keV and provide an all-sky search for transient X-ray sources. All spacecraft systems remain operational up to the end of 2005 and the mission has yielded unique data on both short-term (e.g. kHz QPOs) and long-term variability of many X-ray binary sources and AGN.

Trim levels are X, XE, XT and XTE and driven here is the 2.5 XT which, like all Forester models comes well kitted out and includes in its standard manifest, climate control, electric windows all round, large door mirrors which are electrically manoeuvrable and ideal for towing, powered sunroof, satellite navigation and cruise control, plus a seven-speaker sound system with six-stack CD player and that fine driver safety item steering wheel-mounted controls.
The reseller agreement extends the initial XML Global and iWay Software relationship that was formalized in May 2001, when the two companies signed an OEM agreement to jointly develop an XML integration server, now known as XTE. This most recent pact will provide both companies with additional revenue opportunities as customers in targeted industries -- including automotive, financial services, insurance and healthcare -- will be offered a wide range of XML-based tools to assist with business integration.
