ASKAP and Industry
CSIRO communicates with industry in a variety of ways, including through online and printed publications, the Australian SKA Industry Consortium, public briefings, targeted industry meetings and direct communication through ASKAP team members.
Organisations wanting to be involved with ASKAP are invited to register with AusTender, the Australian Government's procurement information system, where many of ASKAP's larger purchases will be advertised as requests for tender and expressions of interest.
Australasian SKA Industry Consortium
The Australasian SKA Industry Consortium (ASKAIC) is a key Australian industry body whose aim is to assume an influential, strategic and tactical role in supporting ASKAP development and the Australia – New Zealand SKA Coordination Committee in its bid to host the SKA. CSIRO is a member of ASKAIC.
