SKA

SKA

The SKA will be the next generation radio telescope. To be sited in either Australia or South Africa, it will provide nearly two orders of magnitude improvement in sensitivity over existing instruments and more than a 105-fold increase in the speed with which we can map the sky. The "first phase" is expected to start operations in early 2020's. KICC is involved in the scientific exploitation of SKA, especially thanks through its connection with the Battcock Centre for Experimental Astrophysics, in particular for the most prominent case of tracing the cosmic reionization.
