Murchison Widefield Array (MWA)

Low Frequency precursor to the Square Kilometre Array, the MWA has been operating since 2013.

Square Kilometre Array

Currently in the final design phase, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will be the world’s largest telescope when complete. To be constructed in Western Australia and southern Africa, the SKA will have two antenna designs. Shown in this gallery is the current design for the low frequency antennas, to be constructed in Australia.

Aperture Array Verification System 1 (AAVS1)

An extension to the MWA, the AAVS1 is a testbed for antenna designs for the Low Frequency SKA (SKA-Low).
