International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR)

Since our launch in September 2009 ICRAR has emerged as a major new international centre of excellence in astronomical science and technology. A joint venture between Curtin University and The University of Western Australia, with funding from the State Government of Western Australia, we effectively engage with industry and the community whilst delivering world-class outcomes for science, engineering and high performance computing.

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.
