Abstract

"HorizonT-Kazakhstan" (HT-KZ) is an extensive air shower new detector system of a new type to be constructed at Nazarbayev University (NU), Astana, KZ. It is based on the idea of a previous generation detector that is located at Tyan-Shan high-altitude Science Station of the Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences at approximately 3340 meters above the sea level. It will consist of 8 independent modules distributed on the roofs of NU with 1-2 ns time resolution. The purpose is to register Extensive Air Showers (EAS) coming from a wide range of zenith angles. The measurements of the time characteristics of the EAS are to be taken simultaneously at up to eight registration points separated by the distance up to one kilometer. HT-KZ development is very important step in the EAS research area, especially, in the presence of the latest discoveries, such as multi-modal events This article presents the current system development state, the R&D work of the system modules using the independent particle detection modules. The progress in development of the distributed DAQ system and the event synchronization system will be discussed as well.
