Description

We present the preliminary test results of the prototype detector, working at Sphinx Observatory Center, Jungfraujoch ($\sim$3800 m a.s.l.) HFSJG - Switzerland. This prototype detector is designed to measure a large angle cosmic rays flux emerging from the Earth crust. This station provides us an opportunity to understand if the prototype detector works safely under harsh environmental conditions ( the air temperature changes between -25 $^{o}$C and -5 $^{o}$C). This detector prototype is using silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) produced by SensL and DRS4 board as read-out part. Measurements at different temperature at fixed bias voltage ($\sim 29.5$ V) were performed to reconstruct tracks by time of flight. Several array Tests deployed for 18 months at KIT to study the shower reconstruction and background are also presented.
