A next generation Gamma Ray Burst (GRB) mission to follow the upcoming Swift mission is described. The proposed Energetic X-ray Imaging Survey Telescope, EXIST, would yield the limiting (practical) GRB trigger sensitivity, broad-band spectral and temporal response, and spatial resolution over a wide field. It would provide high resolution spectra and locations for GRBs detected at GeV energies with GLAST. Together with the next generation missions Constellation-X, NGST and LISA and optical-survey (LSST) telescopes, EXIST would enable GRBs to be used as probes of the early universe and the first generation of stars. EXIST alone would give ~10–50” positions (long or short GRBs), approximate redshifts from lags, and constrain physics of jets, orphan afterglows, neutrinos and SGRs.
