(ground gamma-ray telescope array)

The High Energy Stereoscopic System (HESS) is a Cherenkov gamma-ray telescope in Namibia consisting of an array of ground-based telescopes to detect Cherenkov radiation resulting from high energy gamma rays, in the same manner as the Cherenkov Telescope Array. HESS went into operation in 2003 with a 2012 upgrade.
