Radio Astronomy Systems Research Group

Array Antenna and Signal Processing Systems for Radio Astronomy



Research Areas

  • Wide-field phased array feed receivers for radio telescopes
  • Radio frequency interference (RFI) cancellation systems and algorithms to mitigate man-made interference for sensitive astronomical observations
  • Array signal processing algorithms for phased array feeds, aperture arrays, and synthesis imaging arrays
  • Wideband array communications with adaptive interference mitigation

Projects

  • Focal L-band Array for the Green Bank Telescope (GBT)
  • Advanced L-band Phased Array Camera for Arecibo (ALPACA)
Focal L band Array for the Green Bank Telescope (FLAG) Observer Information
