© 2018 International Union of Radio Science URSI. The Square Kilometre Array (SKA)  telescope consists in its first phase of two arrays, a dish array to be constructed in South Africa and a low frequency aperture array to be constructed in Western Australia. The aperture array, SKAI-Low, will consist of 512 stations, each with 256 wide bandwidth log periodic antennas. The frequency range of SKAI-Low is 50 to 350 MHz. The Low Frequency Aperture Array (LFAA) consortium is tasked to design the station, the infrastructure around them and the station signal processing.

Colegate, Timothy; Hall, Peter; Gunst, A. (2012)An important design decision for the first phase of the Square Kilometre Array is whether the low frequency component (SKA1-low) should be implemented as a single or dual-band aperture array; that is, using one or two ...
