The HAWC (High Altitude Water Cherenkov) observatory builds on the experience and technology of Milagro to make a second-generation high-sensitivity gamma-ray detector. This unique detector will be capable of continuously surveying the TeV sky for steady and transient sources from 100 GeV to 100 TeV.
