Talk GAI | Gamma Ray Indirect Plenary

Speaker

Jim Hinton (MPIK)

Description

The Southern Wide-field Gamma-ray Observatory (SWGO) Collaboration is currently engaged in design and prototyping work towards the realisation of this future gamma-ray facility. SWGO will complement CTA and the existing ground-particle based-detectors of the Northern Hemisphere (HAWC and LHAASO) with a very wide field and high duty cycle view of the southern sky. In this talk I will present the status of the project and plans for the future, including expectations for sensitivity and science targets as well as the status of the site search and technological developments.
