The Allen Telescope Array: Science Operations

Monday, August 09 2004 - 2:18 pm, PDT
Operation of the Allen Telescope Array, a radio telescope designed to collect a wide range of data and perform commensal observations. Capabilities include transient and variable source surveys, pulsar science, spectroscopy of new molecular species, mapping of galactic magnetic filaments, and imaging of comets and other solar system objects. The ATA also provides training opportunities for radio astronomers.
