GMRT Voltage Capture experiment G072C-E



    The voltage capture system at GMRT offers almost unlimited possibilities for data mining of low frequency radio astronomy observations. They are baseband limited, so are virtually spectrally and temporally unlimited. This comnbined with the large collecting area of GMRT, 30 50m antennas to provide nearly 10% of the eventual collecting area of SKA, produces a very sensitive dataset, but so large that it is a challenge to analyse. Given the opportunities these data sets hold, and the limitations only coming from imagination and processing power, we place the register of the observations on a public archive. Please contact the authors for download of the extremely large raw datasets.
