Description

The first phase of the Alborz Observatory Array (Alborz-I) is designed to have 20 scintillation detectors to study the cosmic ray spectrum in the energy range of $10^{12}$ eV to $10^{16}$ eV. In order to collect data under stable environmental conditions, a sub-array consists of 5 plastic scintillation detectors on a pentagon with side of 5 m similar to the central cluster of the Alborz-I have been operational since February 2014. This paper studies angular distribution of detected showers and the angular resolution of the sub-array with comparing to the simulated results.
