Abstract : The design of an active readout x-ray diffraction crystal spectrometer (HW-1024) for four key Pulsed Plasma Source (PRS) missions has been investigated. This active readout capability is installable into existing film-recording spectrometers, (HW-1000) and compatible with PRS facility computer resources. Three field retrofittable packages, detector, digital interface and control/DAS software, provide the active readout capability. Keywords: Active readout x-ray spectrometer; Diffraction crystals; Digital interface module.
