SKA Science Data Processor consortium concludes work

10 May 2019
SKA Global Headquarters, 9 May 2019 – The SKA’s Science Data Processor (SDP) consortium has concluded its engineering design work, marking the end of five years’ work to design one of two supercomputers that will process the enormous amounts of data produced by the SKA’s telescopes.
The international consortium, led by the University of Cambridge in the UK, has designed the elements that will together form the “brain of the SKA”. In total, close to 40 institutions in 11 countries took part[1]. SDP is the second stage of processing for the masses of digitised astronomical signals collected by the telescope’s receivers, following the correlation and beamforming that takes place in the Central Signal Processor (CSP).
