TUNA Lunch Talk:

Ken Kellermann


The SKA Science and Technical Goals, Organization, & Plans

November 20

12:10PM, Room 230, NRAO, Edgemont Road


I will discuss the current status of planning for the SKA resulting in part, from a series of recent meetings in Manchester, UK. I will include a review of the science drivers, the technical challenges, the current reference design, cost and technical tradeoffs, the project organization, SKA pathfinders, and the new SKA development programs underway in Europe and the US.

Room 230 has been reserved following the lunch talk from 1 to 2 pm, for those who want to remain to discuss the many issues and questions associated with the SKA.
