International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR)

The International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research is a collaborative centre that is international in scope and that achieves research excellence in astronomical science and engineering. ICRAR is an equal joint venture between Curtin University and The University of Western Australia with funding support from the State Government of Western Australia. The Centre's headquarters are located at UWA, with research nodes at both UWA and the Curtin Institute for Radio Astronomy (CIRA).

Collection Name Description
The GMRT Voltage Data repository The voltage capture system at GMRT offers almost unlimited possibilities for data mining of low frequency radio astronomy observations. They are baseband limited, so are virtually spectrally and temporally unlimited. This comnbined with the large collecting area of GMRT, 30 50m antennas to provide nearly 10% of the eventual collecting area of SKA, produces a very sensitive dataset, but so large that it is a challenge to analyse. Given the opportunities these data sets hold, and the limitations only coming from imagination and processing power, we place the register of the observations on a public archive. Please contact the authors for download of the extremely large raw datasets.
