Paper Abstract

The design of a ground based gamma ray telescope is presented. This telescope would be sensitive to extraterrestrial gamma rays with energies from 20 GeV to over 1000 GeV. Among other things, this telescope would be able to make improved studies of the emission mechanism of gamma rays from active galactic nuclei (AGNs), and of the interactions of gamma rays from AGNs with the intergalactic infrared radiation field (IIRF). When combined with independent measurements of the Hubble constant, these observations will enable the measurement of the IIRF.
