iPREP PROJECT AND CSIRO HELPING ASTRONOMERS VIEW THEIR DATA

Three lucky PhD students from Curtin University and Edith Cowan University had the recent opportunity to work with a cutting edge space telescope to develop a software framework that will change the way astronomers view the data being produced.

CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science (CASS) provides technology and services for radio astronomy, spacecraft tracking and space sciences, and undertakes world-leading astronomical research. Their newest radio telescope, the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP), creates enormous terabyte datasets that require processing and analysis with high performance computing. It is important to be able to analyse the facets and present this information in an appropriate way for telescope operators and science teams. This formed the basis of the iPREP project.
