dc.identifier.citationHuege, T. and Bray, J. and Buitink, S. and Butler, D. and Dallier, R. and Ekers, R. and Enßlin, T. et al. 2017. Ultimate precision in cosmic-ray radio detection - The SKA, in Buitnik, S. et al (ed), EPJ Web Conference, Volume 135, Proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Acoustic and Radio EeV Neutrino Detection Activities (ARENA 2016), Jun 7-10 2016, Article No 02003. Groningen, Netherlands: EDP Sciences.

As of 2023, the low-frequency part of the Square Kilometre Array will go online in Australia. It will constitute the largest and most powerful low-frequency radio-astronomical observatory to date, and will facilitate a rich science programme in astronomy and astrophysics. With modest engineering changes, it will also be able to measure cosmic rays via the radio emission from extensive air showers. The extreme antenna density and the homogeneous coverage provided by more than 60,000 antennas within an area of one km 2 will push radio detection of cosmic rays in the energy range around 10 17 eV to ultimate precision, with superior capabilities in the reconstruction of arrival direction, energy, and an expected depth-of-shower-maximum resolution of < 10 g/cm 2 .
