Very high-energy electromagnetic radiation reaches Earth from a large part of the Cosmos, carrying crucial and unique information about the most energetic phenomena in the Universe.

CTA (Cherenkov Telescope Array) will answer many of the persisting questions by enabling the detection of more than thousands sources over the whole sky. CTA builds on the proven technique of detecting gamma-ray induced particle cascades in the atmosphere through their Cherenkov radiation, simultaneously imaging each cascade stereoscopically with multiple telescopes, and reconstructing the properties of the primary gamma ray from those images.

Through deployment of about 50–100 telescopes per site at two sites in the southern (Chile) and the northern hemispheres (Canary Islands), CTA will achieve full-sky coverage.

CTA is interested in the following functionalities implemented by XDC:
