Abstract

The HESS collaboration is planning to build a large Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescope (IACT) array in the Southern Hemisphere in the Khomas Highland of Namibia. In its final stage, the HESS experiment will have up to 16 telescopes each with a 80 m reflector and a high resolution camera. The schedule foresees to start with scientific operation of the first 4-telescope subsystem in 2002 (Phase 1). HESS will have a detection threshold of about 40 GeV and an angular resolution of less than a few arcmin- utes. The flux sensitivity above 100 GeV of 10
