Published: 17 Aug 18
The South African Radio Astronomy Observatory (SARAO) announced on Friday that the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Telescope Manager (TM) Critical Design Review (CDR) had been completed. (The TM is a system, not a person.) The SKA is an international project to build the world’s biggest radio telescope, to be co-hosted by South Africa and Australia – with the addition of outstations in other countries during Phase 2 of the project. The TM CDR was carried out by a consortium of nine institutions in seven countries, with SARAO making a significant contribution to it. Within the consortium, SARAO led the Telescope Manager System Engineering team and also participated in the Management work package. The South Africans who worked in the TM consortium were SARAO Software Functional Manager Ray Brederode, and SARAO Software team members Paul Swart, Lize van der Heever and Gerhard le Roux. The TM consortium (formed in 2013) was one of 12 engineering consortia, involving 500 engineers in 20 countries, working on different aspects of the SKA. Nine of these consortia were concerned with critical components for the telescope and three were concerned with developing advanced instrumentation for it. The TM consortium was the first of all the consortia to pass the very thorough CDR.
