Laura Richter Colloquium: MeerKAT Status and Progress


MeerKAT is an SKA pathfinder telescope located in South Africa. Currently under construction, it will consist of sixty-four 13.5m parabolic antennas with a maximum baseline length of 8km. In this talk I will discuss the current status of MeerKAT, as well as some of the history of the SKA South Africa project. I will include some detail of the MeerKAT science data processor, with a focus on the calibration pipeline.
