Abstract
We present the results of a systematic search for gamma-ray emission from known and unidentified TeV sources, using the data collected by the AGILE satellite in observing pointing mode in the energy range above 100 MeV.
We found that $\sim 34\% $ of the analysed TeV sources sample, extracted from the online TeVCat catalog, show a significant excess in the AGILE data collected during the pointing observation period, from July 9, 2007 to October 18, 2009.
We plan to extend this analysis also to the AGILE data collected from November 2009 on, obtained by observing each day a large portion of the sky in spinning mode.
