Preliminary results from the analysis of first data from hybrid observation campaigns using a compact light-weight Imaging Air-Cherenkov Telescope (IACT), named HAWC’s Eye, and the High-Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) observatory have shown that some features of the air- shower detection in HAWC, as the angular resolution, could be enhanced. Therefore an array of such devices could be an interesting upgrade for modern and future experiments such as the HAWC Observatory or the Southern Wide-field Gamma-ray Observatory (SWGO). In this work, the results of simulated observations of extensive air-showers by the array of 55 HAWC’s Eye IACTs, are shown. An extensive library of simulated primary particles as 𝛾-rays and protons in an energy range from 1 TeV to 100 TeV at an altitude of 4,100 m a.s.l. was produced. The features and performance of such an array are discussed in this work.
