The FAR_XITE is a proposed Balloon Payload that consists of 10 nested mirror modules. The mirrors are coated with multilayers that allow FAR_XITE to reach 100 keV with better than 1 arcminute angular resolution. We describe the science objectives, optical design and specifications, and present our recent results of advances in X-ray mirror fabrication techniques.
