The upgraded GMRT, an SKA Pathfinder: A Deeper view of the Low Frequency Radio Sky
Ishwara-Chandra CH (National Centre for Radio Astrophysics, TIFR)
Abstract: The Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT), in India, consists of 30 fully steerable gigantic parabolic dishes of 45m diameter each spread over distances of about 25 km and operates from 100 to 1450 MHz split into four bands. A major upgrade to the GMRT is complete resulting in seamless frequency coverage from 130 to 1460 MHz with instantaneous bandwidth upto 400 MHz. The upgraded GMRT (uGMRT) is SKA-Pathfinder and offers deep view of the sky at low radio frequencies down to a few tens of microJy/beam, with a resolution of several arcseconds. Here we present an overview of uGMRT and some early science results.
