HESS-II expected performance in the tens of GeV

Abstract : By the end of 2009 the four-telescopes-HESS-system will be upgraded to HESS-II with a new telescope with a 600 m2 mirror area and a very high resolution camera. HESS-II will allow to lower the energy threshold from 100 GeV to about 30 GeV and enhance the HESS sensitivity. Therefore AGNs at higher redshift could be detected and searches for new classes of very high energy gamma-ray emitters (pulsars, microquasars, GRB, and dark matter candidates) will also be possible. The evaluation of the instrument performance is presented in term of sensitivity, energy and angular resolutions, based on Monte Carlo simulation, using a multivariate analysis.
