EMBRACE Workshop at Nançay

EMBRACE Workshop 7-11 September 2015, at the Nançay Radio Observatory.


EMBRACE is the Electronic MultiBeam Radio Astronomy ConcEpt which is the Pathfinder instrument for the 


Kilometre Array

 (SKA) at frequencies between 500MHz and 1500MHz.  EMBRACE was developed during the

European Commission funded project 


 by a collaboration led by 


 with partners 

Observatoire de Paris

Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy

, and the 

Italian National Institute for Astrophysics


prototype at Nançay is an array of 4608 densely-packed antenna elements creating a fully sampled, unblocked

aperture.  This technology is proposed for the Square Kilometre Array and has the potential to provide an extremely

large field of view making it the ideal survey instrument.

The operation of EMBRACE continues as an integral part of the 

SKA Mid Frequency Aperture Array workpackage

which is being developed by the AAMID Consortium.
