CONFERENCE SERIES||Volume:||XIV International Conference on Topics in Astroparticle and Underground Physics (TAUP 2015)||Number:||718||Issue:||5||First Page:||052003||Abstract:||The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) is a world-wide project to build a new generation ground-based gamma-ray instrument operating in the energy range from some tens of GeV to above 100 TeV. To ensure full sky coverage CTA will consist of two arrays of Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes (IACTs), one in the southern hemisphere and another one in the northern hemisphere. CTA has just completed the design phase and it is entering in the pre-production one that includes the development of telescope precursor mini-arrays. ASTRI is an ongoing project, to develop and install at the southern CTA site one of such mini-arrays composed by nine dual-mirror small size telescopes equipped with an innovative camera based on silicon photomultiplier sensors. The end-to-end telescope prototype, named ASTRI SST-2M, has been recently inaugurated at the Serra La Nave observing station, on Mount Etna, Italy. ASTRI SST-2M expected performance has been carefully studied using a full Monte Carlo simulation of the shower development in the atmosphere and detector response. Simulated data have been analyzed using the traditional Hillas moment analysis to obtain the expected angular and energy resolution. Simulation results, together with the comparison with the available experimental measurements, are shown.||Conference Name:||XIV International Conference on Topics in Astroparticle and Underground Physics (TAUP 2015)||Conference Place:||Torino, Italy||Conference Date:||7 - 11 September, 2015||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12386/25296||URL:||https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1742-6596/718/5/052003||ISSN:||1742-6588||DOI:||10.1088/1742-6596/718/5/052003||Bibcode ADS:||2016JPhCS.718e2003B||Fulltext:||open|
