The TeV gamma ray sky is observable by recording footprints of extensive air showers with an array of particle detectors. In the northern hemisphere there are currently two projects employing this technique: The HAWC gamma ray observatory which is currently operational in Mexico and LHAASO in the Sichuan region in China which is currently under development. In the southern hemisphere several efforts are currently ongoing to investigate the feasibility of a similar observatory at very high… Expand
