Land use deal ensures SKA

Monday, 18 January, 2010

Australia’s Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) radio telescope will be built in Western Australia’s mid-west following an Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) signed with traditional owners, the Wajarri Yamatji people.

The ASKAP telescope will be a next-generation radio telescope in its own right, incorporating novel receiver technologies and leading-edge ICT systems that will allow astronomers to answer fundamental questions about the creation and early evolution of the universe.

The agreement covers land in Western Australia’s mid-west which will house the ASKAP and become a permanent observatory site.
