Dear Colleagues,

In May 2013, CSIRO announced the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP) Early Science Program.

ASKAP is an interferometric array of 36 x 12 m radio telescopes, each equipped with a wide-field phased array radio receiver operating between 700 and 1800 MHz. The array is located at the Murchison Radio-Astronomy Observatory in Western Australia, which will be one of the core sites for the Square Kilometre Array.

The ASKAP Early Science Program will be carried out with an array of 12 ASKAP antennas equipped with CSIRO's second generation phased array feeds.

Details of the ASKAP Early Science Program are now available on the ASKAP webpages:


We look forward to working with you to make the ASKAP Early Science program a success.

Best wishes,


Dr. Lisa Harvey-Smith
ASKAP Project Scientist
