ASKAP by numbers
by Keith Bannister
As reported in yesterday's ADAP, Keith Bannister gave a presentation at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Astronomical Society of Australia describing the work recognised in the award of the Anne Green Prize. The image above is one of Keith's slides, which provides a nice summary of ASKAP by numbers, including several not usually quoted! Each Phased Array Feed has 188 elements, so with 36 telescopes the total number of receivers is just under 7000. And, as Keith pointed out, the length of fibre is enough to cover the distance from Perth to San Francisco!
