  author={Domingos Barbosa and Sonia Ant'on and Jo{\~a}o Paulo Barraca and Miguel Bergano and Alexandre C. M. Correia and Dalmiro Maia and Val'erio Ribeiro},
  journal={arXiv: Instrumentation and Methods for Astrophysics},
This white book stems from the contributions presented at the Portuguese SKA Days, held on the 6th and 7th February 2018 with the presence of the SKA Deputy Director General Alistair McPherson and the SKA Science Director Robert Braun. This initiative was held to promote the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) - the world's largest radio telescope - among the Portuguese scientific and business communities with support from the Portuguese Science and Technology Foundation (FCT) with the contribution of… 


Design, environmental and sustainability constraints of new African observatories: The example of the Mozambique Radio Astronomy Observatory
The Mozambique Radio Astronomy Observatory (MRAO) will be a first milestone towards development of radioastronomy in Mozambique. Development of MRAO will constitute a preparation step towards
Square Kilometre Array: The radio telescope of the XXI century
The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will be the world’s largest and most sensitive radio telescope. It will address fundamental unanswered questions about our Universe including how the first stars and

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will be the world's most sensitive radio telescope and is expected to be fully operational at frequencies below 10 GHz by 2023. The SKA will extend over more than
The 2010 European Venus Explorer (EVE) mission proposal
The European Venus Explorer (EVE) mission described in this paper was proposed in December 2010 to ESA as an ‘M-class’ mission under the Cosmic Vision programme. It consists of a single balloon
DOME: towards the ASTRON & IBM center for exascale technology
The intention of the DOME project is to evolve into the global center of excellence for transporting, processing, storing and analyzing large amounts of data for minimal energy cost: the 'ASTRON & IBM Center for Exascale Technology'.
TandEM: Titan and Enceladus mission
TandEM is designed to build on but exceed the scientific and technological accomplishments of the Cassini–Huygens mission, exploring Titan and Enceladus in ways that are not currently possible (full close-up and in situ coverage over long periods of time).
An African VLBI network of radio telescopes
As these antennas become redundant, the possibility exists to convert them for radio astronomy at a cost of roughly one tenth that of a new antenna of similar size, according to HartRAO, SKA Africa and the South African Department of Science and Technology.
Expanding e-MERLIN with the Goonhilly Earth Station
A consortium of universities has recently been formed with the goal of using the decommissioned telecommunications infrastructure at the Goonhilly Earth Station in Cornwall, UK, for astronomical
VLBI tracking of the solar sail mission IKAROS
IKAROS (Interplanetary Kite-craft Accelerated by Radiation Of the Sun) is the world's first spacecraft to successfully demonstrate solar-sail technology in interplanetary space. The spacecraft is
