The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project consists of delivering two largest radio telescope arrays being built by the SKA Observatory (SKAO), which is an intergovernmental organization bringing together nations from around the world with China being one of the major member countries. The computing resources needed to process, distribute, curate and use the vast amount of data that will be generated by the SKA telescopes are too large for the SKAO to manage on its own. To address this challenge… 

A Spectral Line Data Processing Pipeline for SKA Using DALiuGE

A fast processing pipeline for spectral line data based on the distribution execution framework Data Activated Liu Graph Engine (DALiuGE) and compared with the Message Passing Interface (MPI) based method, which is proved to be more stable and efficient on several comparison experiments.



VLBI observations of VIK J2318-3113, a quasar at z = 6.44

Context. The nature of jets in active galactic nuclei (AGNs) in the early Universe and their feedback to the host galaxy remains a highly topical question. Observations of the radio structure of

VLBI imaging of the pre-coalescence SMBHB candidate SDSS J143016.05+230344.4

Context. Recently, SDSS J143016.05 + 230344.4 (J1430 + 2303) was reported to be a supermassive black hole binary (SMBHB) in the final coalescence phase. It is probably the first SMBHB coalescence event

GaLactic and Extragalactic All-sky Murchison Widefield Array survey eXtended (GLEAM-X) I: Survey description and initial data release

Abstract We describe a new low-frequency wideband radio survey of the southern sky. Observations covering 72–231 MHz and Declinations south of $+30^\circ$ have been performed with the Murchison

A radio transient with unusually slow periodic emission.

The high-frequency radio sky is bursting with synchrotron transients from massive stellar explosions and accretion events, but the low-frequency radio sky has, so far, been quiet beyond the Galactic

The LOFAR Two-metre Sky Survey (LoTSS). V. Second data release

In this data release from the ongoing LOw-Frequency ARray (LOFAR) Two-metre Sky Survey (LoTSS) we present 120-168 MHz images covering 27% of the northern sky. Our coverage is split into two regions

CHILES. VII. Deep Imaging for the CHILES Project, an SKA Prototype

Radio astronomy is undergoing a renaissance, as the next generation of instruments provides a massive leap forward in collecting area and therefore raw sensitivity. However, to achieve this

A compact symmetric radio source born at one-tenth the current age of the Universe

Studies of high redshift radio galaxies can shed light on the activity of active galactic nuclei (AGN) in massive elliptical galaxies, and on the assembly and evolution of galaxy clusters in the

J2102+6015: a young radio source at z = 4.575

Jets of high-redshift active galactic nuclei (AGNs) can be used to directly probe the activity of the black holes in the early Universe. Radio sources with jets misaligned with respect to the line
