MWA CONFIGURATIONS

Flexibility to accommodate a wide range of science cases

The MWA has expanded, with marked improvements in its engineering characteristics increasing the breadth and depth of observable sky. Click on the links below to learn more about the different stages of the telescope.

The surveyed coordinates of the different array configurations can be found here (note the multiple pages within the spreadsheet): MWA Tile Coordinates.xlsx
