MonRAt is a telescope designed to detect photons generated in the atmosphere by ultra-high energy cosmic ray particles. It is composed of a parabolic mirror focusing light onto a 64-pixel multianode photomultiplier tube. Ultraviolet-passing filters are positioned in front of the photocathode to select photons within the wavelength range of 300 to 400 nm. The data acquisition system consists of a front-end, a set of preamplifiers and FPGA-based boards able to record trigger times and waveforms from each channel. MonRAt is being designed to detect air fluorescence radiation under different atmospheric and geomagnetic conditions.
