SKA preconstruction program
ICRAR is actively engaged in three aspects of preconstruction for the Square Kilometre Array: the Low Frequency Aperture Arrays (for SKA-low, the part of the SKA entirely in Australia), the Science Data Processor (a powerful computing system to produce the images scientists need), and the Central Signal Processor (the computer that combines the signals from all the antennas into the format needed by the Science Data Processor). We're working with our colleagues around the world to help prepare for these important parts of the SKA. Learn more in our news item from the 5th of November 2013.
