SKA Expression of Interest

NCRA-TIFR invites Expression of Interest from Government and Public Sector Organisations for the Pre-construction Phase of the Square Kilometre Array

 

NCRA is an active member of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project, an international radio telescope that is in the design phase, and will be constructed starting 2017, at a cost of 650 million Euro for SKA Phase I (till 2022) and a cost of 1.5 billion Euro for the full SKA (from 2022 to 2027). For the ongoing pre-construction phase of the SKA, NCRA is leading a multi-national consortium for the Monitoring and Control (Telescope Manager) work, as well as other packages like signal transport, signal processing etc. We invite Expressions of Interest (EoI) in specific tasks for this work, from Indian industries, for the remaining part of this design phase. Those who are short-listed based on the response to this request will be invited to bid for tenders for the actual work.
