Title: Developments at IDIA – Preparation for MeerKAT
Speaker: Brad Frank
Date: Thursday, 8 September 2016
Time: 11:00 - 12:00
Venue: SAAO Auditorium

Abstract

The MeerKAT Large Survey Projects (MLSPs) will use thousands of hours of MeerKAT’s operational lifetime to address a variety of important questions related to galaxy formation, extreme physics and the evolution of our universe.

The imaging MLSPs are largely commensal and share lots of overlap – both scientifically and technically.

At IDIA, we plan to exploit the scientific overlap between the imaging MLSPs to develop a calibration and imaging pipeline framework – which we are currently developing and testing on the African Research Cloud Proof of Concept ARCADE.

In my talk I will provide an overview of the imaging MLSPs and I will talk about the pipeline design and progress that we have made with ARCADE thus far.
