ACES memo series (ASKAP Commissioning & Early Science)

This series of ASKAP Memoranda presents material arising from ASKAP Commissioning & Early Science (ACES) activities.

The now archived Design and Science Case Memo series (a collection that outlines the development of both the design and the science case proposals for the ASKAP telescope, previously known as 'xNTD' and 'MIRANdA') is available separately.
