SKADS Partner: University of Cambridge


Cavendish Astrophysics (Cav-Ap) at Cambridge University has long experience in the construction and operation of radio telescopes, this includes the building of one of the world’s first phased arrays for radio astronomy which made the Nobel prize winning discovery of Pulsars. Cav-Ap has a very active Galaxy Evolution group specializing in the evolution of star-forming galaxies and AGN and associated feedback processes; several members of the group are already investigating the problems involved with handling massive data-sets which will be crucial to the success of the SKA project.


Major participant in DS2 (Science and Astronomical Data Simulations) and DS3 (The Network and its output data); participants in DS4(Technical foundations and enabling technologies); DS5 (Aperture Array demonstrator EMBRACE).
