The High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) observatory extends the wide field of view, continuously operating characteristics of the Fermi GeV observatory to TeV energies. HAWC observations will begin in 2013 with 1/3 of the detector and the full detector will be operational in 2014. HAWC’s field of view of ~2 sr and angular resolution of ~0.5 degrees are similar to Fermi’s. HAWC’s flux sensitivity is comparable to the narrow field of view and low duty cycle, atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes, such as VERITAS and HESS, at energies above a few TeV. The location of HAWC at 19°N latitude allows HAWC to survey -10.
