The components of the PSRD, a detector to study the flux of X-rays and charged particles in the keV-MeV energy range in outer space, are described. The device is a precursor for the Synchrotron Radiation Detector, which is one of the detector components of the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS02). The AMS02 will be operated for several years on the International Space Station.
