dc.description.abstract TeV gamma rays probe the non-thermal Universe in ways that are not possible at other wavelengths. The HAWC observatory, under construction in Mexico, will be able to analyze and survey the TeV sky more completely than any competing detectors that use air Cherenkov techniques, and perhaps yield new insight onto the nature of cosmic accelerators responsible for gamma ray bursts, active galactic nuclei flares, and other cataclysmic astrophysical events. Before it's deployment, one of HAWC's electronic data acquisition systems, the scaler system, will be tested using a pulse generator. The pulse generator's capabilities are assessed and documented. en_US
