H.E.S.S. is an array of five Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes (IACTs) located 1800 m above sea level in the Khomas Highland of Namibia and is sensitive to very-high-energy (VHE) gamma rays between tens of GeV to tens of TeV. The very-high background rejection capabilities of IACTs provide excellent sensitivity of H.E.S.S. to GRBs. In this contribution the status of the H.E.S.S. GRB programme, already started in 2003, is reviewed. A highlight is the recent addition of the fifth telescope… CONTINUE READING
