UFFO-pathfinder is a pioneering space mission to observe the early evolution of Gamma-ray Bursts using a fast slewing strategy. It consists of the Slewing Mirror Telescope, for rapid pointing at UV/optical wavelengths and the UFFO Burst Alert and Trigger Telescope. It has a total weight of ~ 20 kg and will be launched on-board the Russian Lomonosov satellite at the end of 2015. The instrumental details of UFFO-pathfinder and its performance are discussed briefly here.
