ASKAP and Industry
CSIRO communicates with industry in a variety of ways, including through online and printed publications, the Australian SKA Industry Consortium (ASKAIC), public briefings and occasional site tours, targeted industry meetings and direct communication through ASKAP team members.
Australasian SKA Industry Consortium
The Australasian SKA Industry Consortium (ASKAIC) is a key Australian industry body supported by the Department of Industry and Science whose aim is to assume an influential, strategic and tactical role in supporting Australian industry's participation in ASKAP, the Square Kilometre Array and 'Big Data' projects. CSIRO is a member of ASKAIC.
For further information, contact Mr Geof Heydon by phone (0419 203 993) or email.
Several publications provide technical information on ASKAP and outline opportunities for industry to be involved with current and future projects at the Murchison Radio astronomy Observatory (MRO) site:
Industry Engagement with ASKAP
CSIRO is working with Australian industry to solve complex challenges involved in building the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP), and planning for the future international SKA telescope project.
Industry participation has created strong collaborations with a variety of organisations, among them niche R&D companies, and resulted in commercial contracts with high-volume manufacturers, technology systems vendors, site services and installations firms, and energy and data transmission specialists.
For more information on CSIRO's ASKAP and SKA-related industry activities contact ASKAP Director Ant Schinckel.
