The ARDRA workshop
A workshop was held this week in Lonavala, India, on the topic of Australia-India Research and Development in Radio Astronomy (ARDRA). (Ardra is also the Sanskrit name for the region of the sky which contains the western constellation of Orion.) The workshop recognises that Australia and India both have rich and strong traditions of front-line work in scientific and technical aspects of Radio Astronomy, and that there is considerable scope for working more closely in collaboration on several topics of mutual interest. Both countries are contributing significantly to the construction of the Square Kilometer Array (SKA), and have significant experience with building, operating and pursuing science with the SKA precursors and path-finder instruments – the upgraded Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (uGMRT) in India, and the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) and the Australian SKA Path-finder (ASKAP) in Australia.
