ICRAR Contributions to the Aperture Array Verification Program
MetadataShow full item record
The new International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) is a 60M euro joint venture between Curtin University and The University of Western Australia. ICRAR is currently the only non-European collaborator in the Aperture Array Verication Program (AAVP) and will co-lead the AA-lo work package. The proposed work plan emphasizes innovative design for wideband sparse arrays situated at radio-quiet sites, cost-effective manufacturing and deployment methods, and on-site prototyping and characterization. This short paper describes ICRAR, some of its capabilities and the AAVP interaction
