Abstract: There is unresolved X-ray emission in the Galactic center region (GDXE). Isolated black holes (iBHs) may contribute to the GDXE. IBHs could emit X-rays by the Bondi-Hoyle accretion of interstellar medium. The Galactic center has high number densities of stars and interstellar medium, in particular molecular clouds. Hardness ratio in the hard X-ray band (>10 keV) is a key to discovering iBHs. We have planed an X-ray observatory “Focusing On Relativistic universe and Cosmic Evolution (FORCE)”. FORCE has ∼15” spacial resolution and thus higher sensitivity ∼1032 ergs s-1. We expect that FORCE will detect such iBHs in the Galactic center region.
