Abstract

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project [1] is an international effort to build the world's most sensitive radio telescope operating in the 50 MHz to 14 GHz frequency range. Construction of the SKA has been divided into phases, with the first phase (SKA1) accounting for the first 10% of the telescope's receiving capacity. During SKA1, an array of 197 mid-frequency parabolic-dish antennas, incorporating the 64 dishes of MeerKAT, will be constructed in South Africa (SKAl-mid).
