The technical design of the camera for the large-size
telescopes of CTA will be produced as well as at least a partial
We aim to use as many components common to the cameras for other types
of telescope as possible without compromising the performance at the
lowest energies. The small number of cameras for the Large Size
Telescope as well as their low cost with respect to the structure of the
telescope justify an increase of cost to achieve a better performance
or reduce the price of the structure. We will review and evaluate new
photosensors, possible technologies for recording pixel signals and
camera trigger strategies.
For the decision milestone at 12 months, a Conceptual Design Report will
be ready with an evaluation of existing technologies as well as a
default option for the different components. After this point, the
default option will be further refined, aiming for an integrated
technical design by the end of the preparatory phase.
