Description

In the future, ultra-high energy cosmic ray (UHECR) observatory will be expanded due to the small flux. Then, cost reduction is useful strategy to realize a huge scale observatory. For this purpose, we are developing a simple structure cosmic ray detector named as Cosmic Ray Air Fluorescence Fresnel-lens Telescope (CRAFFT). We deployed CRAFFT detectors at the Telescope Array site and performed the test observation. We have successfully observed UHECR air showers. We will report the status and the result of the test observation.
