The first of over 130,000 low-frequency antennas for the €2 billion (£1.7 billion) NEC-procured Square Kilometre Array Observatory (SKAO) was installed in Australia in March 2024. The 2 m tall, tree-shaped antennas are now being erected on 512 sites at Murchison in Western Australia and are due to start operating in 2029. Together with nearly 200 mid-frequency 15 m diameter dishes in the Karoo region of South Africa, they will form the world largest radio telescope observatory. #telecommunication #nec4 #australia
