Abstract

The installation of The Telescope Array experiment started in earnest. Since observation by combine two different type air shower detector, we aim to search super GZK cosmic ray and determine accurately the energy of these CRs. In past, extensive air shower observations using scintillation detector array give many good results Utilize these experience, we combine scintillator array and fluorescence detectors for determination for EAS energy scale, core position and incoming direction. In this paper, we introduce the electronics and data acquisition system for our scintillator array; call Surface Detector (SD). The engineering array that constituted 18 scintillation detectors was installed on December 2004. We have tested our electronics and DAQ on this small array. Complete SD will have 576 detectors, around 900 km2. This will be about 9 times larger than AGASA.
