The FiberGLAST telescope is a large-area instrument
concept for NASA's Gamma Ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST)
The detector uses scintillating fiber arrays read out with multi-anode
photomultiplier tubes for both particle tracking and calorimetry.
We have tested a prototype instrument during a beam test at Louisiana
State University. We present the prototype instrument characteristics
and detector performance, and discuss laboratory tests of fiber light
output, detection efficiency, occupancy, cross-talk, and fiber
