A proposed new method for measuring the cherenkov light from extensive air showers (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 it is proposed to use cherenkov light produced by EAS in
a ground network of wide-angle telescopes which are separated from
each other by a distance 100-300 m depending on the total number of
telescopes operating in coincidence, acting
autonomously, or includes a detector of the charged components,
radio waves, etc. as part of the EAS. Results of such an array should be
developed. The energy measurement and CR angle of the arrival data on the
depth of the maximum and the associated mass of the primary
particle generating by EAS. This is particularly important in the
study of galactic cosmic ray for $E> 10^{14} $eV, where currently there
are no direct measurements of the maximum depth of the EAS.
