Astronomy

Contributing to space development

Here we develop high-performance observation control, analysis and archiving systems for some of the world's largest telescopes. Our systems gather vast volumes of radio wave data from the distant universe with unprecedented levels of sensitivity and resolution. This allows scientists to see back in time and explore our cosmic origins.
