Abstract (from CDS):

The region around PSR B1706-44 has been observed with the HESS imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes in 2003. No evidence for γ-ray emission in the TeV range was found at the pulsar position or at the radio arc which corresponds to the supernova remnant G343.1-2.3. The 99% confidence level flux upper limit at the pulsar position is Ful(E>350GeV)=1.4x10–12/s/cm2 assuming a power law (dN/dE∝E–Γ) with photon index of Γ=2.5 and Ful(E>500GeV)=1.3x10–12/s/cm2 without an assumption on the spectral shape. The reported upper limits correspond to 8% of the flux from an earlier detection by the CANGAROO experiment. Key words. gamma rays: observations - ISM: individual objects: PSR B1706-44 - ISM: supernova remnants - ISM: individual objects: G343.1-2.3
