ATNF Colloquium
Near and Long-term Trends and Opportunities in US Radio Astronomy
Tony Beasley(NRAO)
Abstract: In this talk I will discuss the ambitious scientific program underway in the United States over the next decade to explore the radio Universe, in concert with numerous powerful new instruments around the world, and facilities at other wavelengths. The scientific opportunities and technical/operational challenges being faced by ground-based radio astronomy in the United States currently are significant; half a decade beyond the 2020 Decadal Survey process, factors both internal and external to the astronomy community have slowed the development of many U.S. facilities. NRAO is exploring several new technologies and operational approaches to optimize the scientific return from our existing and planned instruments; these will be described. As the field of radio astronomy approaches its centenary, we continue to seek new scientific horizons.
