Abstract
Proposed a new method for measuring the cherenkov light from the extensive air shower (EAS)
of cosmic rays (CR), which allows to determine not only the primary particle energy and angle
of arrival, but also the parameters of the shower in the atmosphere - the maximum depth and
"age". For measurements Cherenkov light produced by EAS is proposed to use a ground network
of cherenkov telescopes which are mounted on drones with the regulated distance depending
on the total number of telescopes operating in the coincidence signals and current task, acting
autonomously, or includes a detector of the charged components, radio waves, etc. as part of EAS
array. In a results such array could developed, energy measurement and CR. This is particularly
important in the study of galactic cosmic ray in E> 10^14 eV, where currently there are no direct
measurements of the maximum depth of the EAS.
