The Mileura Widefield Array



The Mileura Widefield Array (MWA) is a radio telescope under construction at Mileura Station in Western Australia. The current activity is to build to "demonstrators" that are the first step to larger telescopes, possibly culminating in the international Square Kilometer Array. The lower frequency demonstrator will operate from 80 MHz to 300 MHz and is called "The Low Frequency Demonstrator" (LFD). The MIT radio group is actively involved in this project.
