The CANGAROO Project

TeV gamma-ray observations by ground-based telescopes in Australia

Abstract. CANGAROO (the Collaboration of Australia and Nippon (Japan) for a GAmma Ray Observatory in the Outback) project has been exploring the southern sky in the sub-TeV to multi-TeV energy range using the ground-based Cherenkov telescopes located in South Australia. Supernova remnants of non-thermal X-ray detection, rotation-powered pulsars of large dE/dt over d2 value, and other galactic unique objects including our Galactic Center have been selected as observation targets, together with some nearby X-ray selected BL Lacs and (starburst) galaxies. Introduction of the project and some recent results will be presented.
