Description

KLYPVE-EUSO (K-EUSO) is a planned orbital detector of ultra-high energy cosmic rays (UHECRs), which is to be deployed on board the International Space Station. K-EUSO is expected to have an almost uniform exposure over the celestial sphere and register from 120 to 500 UHECRs at energies above ~57 EeV in a 2-year mission. We employ the CRPropa3 package to estimate prospects of testing the UHECR single source class model by Kachelriess, Kalashev, Ostapchenko and Semikoz (2017) with K-EUSO in terms of the large-scale anisotropy. According to the simulations, K-EUSO will be able to probe the model in case it records ~200 or more events and the from-source flux constitutes ~20% of the whole data set.
