Description The HGPS revealed a point-like source we consider to be of high interest: HESS J1828-099. It is one of only 17 sources in the HGPS with an angular size 0.07deg. This source is unique in the sense that it does not seem to have apparent associations at lower energies and it is not located in highly confused regions such as the Galactic Center. What is the nature of HESS J1828-099 ? Is it perhaps a young PWN, with dim counterparts? Is it maybe a gamma-ray binary? A supernova remnant? We aim at identifying the nature of the point-like unidentified source HESS J1828-099 in thecontext of a MWL campaign (X-rays and radio). We will prove the non-thermal emission scenario making use of these three different frequencies.

Mission Description The European Space Agency's (ESA) X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton) was launched by an Ariane 504 on December 10th 1999. XMM-Newton is ESA's second cornerstone of the Horizon 2000 Science Programme. It carries 3 high throughput X-ray telescopes with an unprecedented effective area, and an optical monitor, the first flown on a X-ray observatory. The large collecting area and ability to make long uninterrupted exposures provide highly sensitive observations.
Since Earth's atmosphere blocks out all X-rays, only a telescope in space can detect and study celestial X-ray sources. The XMM-Newton mission is helping scientists to solve a number of cosmic mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic black holes to the origins of the Universe itself. Observing time on XMM-Newton is being made available to the scientific community, applying for observational periods on a competitive basis.
