In May 2013, CSIRO announced the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP) Early Science Program.

ASKAP Early Science is a program of observations designed to explore new scientific parameter-space with ASKAP before the construction of the array is complete.

The ASKAP Early Science Program will consist of a series of science-focused observations, carried out by the ASKAP commissioning and early science team, using an array of 12 ASKAP antennas equipped with CSIRO's second generation phased array feed (PAF) receivers.

There are three main documents detailing the ASKAP Early Science Program on the ASKAP Science webpage:

  • The Announcement of ASKAP Early Science, May 2013 [PDF, 80kB]
  • The ASKAP Early Science Workshop Annoucenment, July 2013 [PDF, 3MB]
  • The ASKAP Early Science Program - v1.0, September 2013 [PDF, 147kB]
  • To provide feedback on this (in particular, the ASKAP Early Science Program document), please email ASKAP Project Scientist Lisa Harvey-Smith by 31 October 2013.
