Space and Astronomy engineering research programs focus on developing, and applying, new technology and advanced design techniques to radio astronomy and allied fields. Expertise within the organization spans a very wide range, from ultra-low-noise millimetre-wave receivers, through the spectrum of digital signal processing, to precision servo control systems. Significantly, the breadth of activities encompasses both design and in-house implementation capabilities – a strength exploited in internal programs and external contract work.
Space and Astronomy (formerly CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science) has long been acknowledged as a world leader in pioneering low-noise, high-performance antenna systems and receivers.
Radio telescopes need purpose-built signal processors.
The next International Phased Array Feed (PAF) & Advanced Receiver Workshop will be held at CSIRO in Sydney on Tuesday the 15th to Thursday the 17th November 2022.
