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. artist concept of EMBRACE at Westerbork

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.
