    An event to present the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) and radioastronomy to the European Community, Policy Makers & African Collaborators in the framework of the 8th Partnership EU-Africa Forum. A side event to the ' Africa-EU Cooperation Week on ICT' organised by the EuroAfrica-ICT/P8 Initiative on Nov. , in Lisbon, Portugal (). Find out about Australia's super science project - the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). Listen to astronomy experts discuss Australia's bid to be the home of the world's first SKA (telescope). See the telescope Australian scientists built to demonstrate their technological capabilities and help secure the bid. Find out what undiscovered phenomena the telescopes might reveal about the universe.

      In , you probably heard a lot about the Square Kilometre Array or SKA, particularly how Australia was one of the forerunners for hosting the SKA—the largest telescope in the world.. It . SKA Pathfinders. The Square Kilometer Array (SKA) will be the next generation large radiotelescope, far surpassing current capabilities and giving astronomers insight into the formation and evolution of the first stars and galaxies after the Big Bang, the role of cosmic magnetism, the nature of gravity, and possibly life beyond Earth. If history is any guide, the SKA will make many more.

      The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) is a huge project designed to sweep away many of the current roadblocks to astronomical progress. These include searching for the first celestial objects to . CSIRO's Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) telescope, is a radio interferometer consisting of 36 antennas equipped with new receiver technology that achieve a wide instantaneous field of view. The phased array feed (PAF) receivers create 36 separate (simultaneous) beams on the sky which observe an area of 30 square degrees.

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) is a multi-purpose radio telescope, covering the frequency range from 50 MHz to 20 GHz that will play a major role in answering key questions in modern astrophysics and cosmology.

The SKA Design is a global effort by 12 international engineering consortia representing engineers and scientists in 20 countries. Each consortium is international in nature, representing some of the best companies and institutes in the world. Nine of the consortia focus on a component of the telescope, each critical to the overall success of the project, while three others focus on.

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project is an international collaboration to build the world’s largest radio telescope. The SKA aims to conduct groundbreaking science that will transform our understanding of the Universe and of the laws of fundamental physics.

The SKA will monitor the sky in unprecedented detail and map it hundreds of times. The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) is called to revolutionise essentially all areas of Astrophysics.

With a collecting area of about a square kilometre, the SKA will be a transformational instrument. We present a detailed overview of the cosmological surveys that we aim to carry out with Phase 1 of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA1) and the science that they will enable.

We highlight three main surveys: a medium-deep continuum weak lensing and low-redshift spectroscopic HI galaxy survey over 5 deg 2 ; a wide and deep continuum galaxy and HI intensity mapping (IM) survey over 20 deg. The Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) is a radio telescope array located at Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory (MRO) in the Australian Mid consists of 36 identical parabolic antennas, each 12 metres in diameter, working together as a single instrument with a total collecting area of approximately 4, square metres.

It is operated by the governmental Location(s): Western Australia, Australia. The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) is called to revolutionise essentially all areas of Astrophysics. With a collecting area of about a square kilometre, the SKA will be a transformational instrument, and its scientific potential will go beyond the interests of astronomers.
