The small interaction cross section for gamma rays can provide a direct view into nature's highest energy accelerators. In addition, gamma rays point back to their sources unlike cosmic rays which are deflected by magnetic fields. The main advantages of the LAT detector will be the wide field of view (2sr) and the extremely short dead time per event (< 100//s). 5xlO 5 : 1) will allow GLAST to detect both faint sources and transient signals in the gamma-ray sky. The capabilities of the GLAST LAT detector compared to those of EGRET are summarized in table 2.

The tracking system is used to determine the momentum and the sign of the charge of the particles and the combined information from the TRD and calorimeter gives excellent lepton hadron separation. At lower energies (<1 GeV for protons) particles can also be identified directly from time-of-flight measurements. Before a candidate event is selected, the activity in the anticoincidence system is checked. No activity means that the particle has cleanly entered and traversed the acceptance of the tracker.

In fact AMS-01 data has a high statistics, wide Earth surface covered both in latitude and longitude and wide rigidity range. AMS detector flow in space on board of the Space Shuttle in June 1998 in the STS-91 mission. In 10 days of data taking it collected over 108 CR protons in addition to electrons, positrons and Helium nuclei3. We then started reproducing the primary CR flux at the AMS altitude to obtain a relation with their original entering points at the magp. Moreover the new AMS-02 detector is in preparation.
