We report on the progress being made on the mirror array telescope for high energies (MARTHE) project. As a first step, we are producing small mirror flats and full-size Wolter I mirrors that are lacquer coated (mandrels) and then coated with gold or palladium. We present the up-to-date results of fabricating and testing these mirrors. Currently, we can provide results on the micro-roughness, macro-figure, X-ray scattering and reflectivity up to 8 keV from flats and Wolter I mirrors as well as optical measurements of the flats. We are also trying to extend the technology to work at energies up to 40 keV.
