    Technology Development Project

    • NSF-funded 2007-2011 for $12M

      • Includes US contribution to the SPDO

  • Complementary to and integrated with PrepSKA

    • EC-funded project 3+1 years, ~ same time frame as TDP

  • Targets areas that bear strongly on cost and basic performance (Ae, Tsys, B, cross polarization, processing)

  • Will deliver to the SKA project:

    • Technology options for LNSD array with broadband single-pixel feeds

    • Costing of reflectors+mounts vs. D and fmax

    • Optical designs that include both SP + PAF options (decision tree)

    • An SKA-optimized antenna, outfitted with feeds/receivers

    • Calibration and processing technology for LNSD arrays

    • Cost-modeling information for project decisions

  • Jim Cordes US SKA Consortium Meeting Washington, DC


    Tdp management

    TDP Management

    • TDP Project Office (Cornell)

      • Project Director (JMC)

      • Project Manager (Lynn Baker)

      • Administrative assistance (D. Howe, J. Tarbell)

      • Web-site maintenance (A. Brazier)

  • TDP Advisory Committee

    • Sarah Church, Phil Diamond, Paul Goldsmith, Peter Hall, John Weber

  • Project Execution Plan (PEP) approved by the NSF/STOG

  • Distributed effort organized at mid level by working groups:

    • Antennas Working Group (Jack Welch/Matt Fleming)

    • Calibration and Processing Group (Athol Kemball)

  • Direct collaborations with Australia, Canada, South Africa via participation in the AWG or CPG

  • TDP work packages integrated with the PrepSKA

  • Jim Cordes US SKA Consortium Meeting Washington, DC
