Future missions that may be deployed in the European Space Agencys Cosmic Visions 2025 scientific programme may include high energy astrophysics observatories that require focusing optics with unprecedented collection area. We describe scientific drivers for such missions, and discuss various implementations of optics designs that could satisfy the requirements. Options for lightweight reflectors and a possible implementation scenario are described and trade-offs for various coatings are presented.
