For low frequency observations (< 300 MHz) the radio astronomical community is currently developing a number of new instruments such as the low frequency array (LOFAR), the Mileura wide field array (MWA) and the primeval structure telescope (PaST). These telescopes require new calibration algorithms since phased arrays require an all-sky approach to imaging… CONTINUE READING
