Strategic Motivation and Synergies

Current Generation Instruments

HESS, VERITAS:

Sensitivity ~ 1% Crab in 20 – 30 h

Erange ~ 100 GeV – 100 TeV

Aeff ~ 100,000 m2

Angular resolution ~ 0.1o

MAGIC-II:

Ethres ~ 25 GeV

VERITAS is currently the most sensitive TeV Observatory in the World!

UChicago – Founding Member ; Argonne joined 2005

veritas
VERITAS

TrICE

VERITAS: More than 20 refereed publications in the last 2 years.

Dark Matter Science WG – Wagner (ANL) co-convener

AstroParticle WG – Wakely (UChicago) convener

UChicago – HV system, DAQ hardware/software

Argonne – Trigger Upgrade

TrICE Camera

  • TrICE (Track Imaging Cherenkov Experiment) Argonne,UChicago,Utah
  • Prototype Experiment had several goals:
  • Direct Cherenkov Science
  • Camera R&D for Future Gamma-ray and Direct Cherenkov Experiments.

Electronics Design

DRS4

  • 64-channel prototype board with DRS ASIC
    • 4 copies of an independent 16-channel daughter board + master control logic
    • Each board has integrated trigger, calibration and ADC readout
      • 12bit, 2 us depth at 1 GSPS
    • Testing now underway

This Proposal:

    • Design of system interface to an active front-end
    • And connection to a trigger

Summary and Future Plans

Complete Conceptual Design of SC Telescope integrating ANL Dish and UChicago Camera Box/Mount; Build a “Mock-up” structure for simple tests and proof of principle.

Complete DAQ readout board for one camera module; begin a system conceptual design interfacing camera front-end DAQ to an active front end and a topological like trigger.
