CSIRO CSIRO's astronomy, spacecraft tracking and space science activities will be headed up by a new leader, with the announcement today that Dr Lewis Ball has been appointed as the incoming Chief for CSIRO's Astronomy and Space Science (CASS) division. Dr Ball returns to CSIRO from his present role as Deputy Director at the Atacama Large Millimeter/sub-millimeter Array (ALMA) located in Chile. There he has led the successful commencement of ALMA's scientific operation, currently the...

New 2-D Optical Phased Array Technology To Enable Advanced LADAR, Other Defense Applications
2013-01-18 09:05:40

DARPA Most people are familiar with the concept of RADAR. Radio frequency (RF) waves travel through the atmosphere, reflect off of a target, and return to the RADAR system to be processed. The amount of time it takes to return correlates to the object´s distance. In recent decades, this technology has been revolutionized by electronically scanned (phased) arrays (ESAs), which transmit the RF waves in a particular direction without mechanical movement. Each emitter varies its phase and...

Billions Could Be Saved By New Telescope
2012-11-30 20:32:48

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A new telescope in Australia could potentially help save the world billions of dollars by providing early warning of massive solar storms. The Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) radio telescope was unveiled on Friday and its ability to keep an eye on the Sun could provide early warning to prevent damage to communication satellites, electric power grids and GPS navigation systems. The low-frequency radio telescope will be capable...

Australia Unveils ASKAP Telescope

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Australia has unveiled a new $155 million telescope that could start to capture radio images as soon as today. The Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) is one of the world's fastest telescopes and sits in Australia's outback. ASKAP has 36 antennas with a diameter of 40 feet each and forms part of the world's biggest radio telescope projects. The telescope is located at the Murchison Radio-Astronomy...

SETI To Receive Funds From Uwingu

Very Large Array -- The Very Large Array, one of the world's premier astronomical radio observatories, consists of 27 radio antennas in a Y-shaped configuration on the Plains of San Agustin fifty miles west of Socorro, New Mexico. Each antenna is 25 meters (82 feet) in diameter. The data from the antennas is combined electronically to give the resolution of an antenna 36km (22 miles) across, with the sensitivity of a dish 130 meters (422 feet) in diameter. The VLA is an...
