  • Project Manager’s Report Lynn Baker

    • Organization & Activities

  • Antennas, Feeds and Receivers (AWG)

    • Jack Welch

    • Matt Fleming

    • German Cortes

    • Sandy Weinreb

  • Calibration and Processing (CPG)

    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
