|Square Kilometre Array Design Studies
The Square Kilometre Array Design Studies is an international effort to investigate and develop technologies which will enable us to build an enormous radio astronomy telescope with a million square metres of collecting area.
SKADS focuses on the development of the Aperture Plane Phased Array which uses fast digital technology to make a flexible, multitasking telescope that can do many different astronomical observations all at the same time.
SKADS is partly funded by the European Community “Sixth Framework Programme,” and includes partners from 26 institutes in 13 countries.
I was the Project Scientist for SKADS during the four years it was funded by the European Commission, from 2005-2009. You can find here my SKADS publications, presentations, and photos. As Project Scientist, I was also responsible for newsletters and the official SKADS website.
