We present the Allen Telescope Array Twenty-centimeter Survey (ATATS), a multi-epoch (12 visits), 690 deg2 radio image and catalog at 1.4 GHz. The survey is designed to detect rare, very bright transients as well as to verify the capabilities of the ATA to form large mosaics. The combined image using data from all 12 ATATS epochs has rms noise σ = 3.94 mJy beam−1 and dynamic range 180, with a circular beam of 150″ FWHM. It contains 4408 sources to a limiting sensitivity of 5σ = 20 mJy beam−1…

THE ALLEN TELESCOPE ARRAY Pi GHz SKY SURVEY. I. SURVEY DESCRIPTION AND STATIC CATALOG RESULTS FOR THE BOOeTES FIELD
TLDR
Observations of a 10 deg(2) region in the Bootes constellation overlapping the NOAO Deep Wide Field Survey field are presented, providing flux densities, source sizes, and spectral indices for the 425 sources detected in the image.
THE ALLEN TELESCOPE ARRAY Pi GHz SKY SURVEY II. DAILY AND MONTHLY MONITORING FOR TRANSIENTS AND VARIABILITY IN THE BOÖTES FIELD
We present results from daily radio continuum observations of the Boötes field as part of the Pi GHz Sky Survey (PiGSS). These results are part of a systematic and unbiased campaign to characterize
A Search for Radio Transients in VLA Archival Images of the 3C 286 Field
We present a search for radio transients (RTs) in the field of the bright radio source 3C 286 using archival observations from the Very Large Array (VLA). These observations span 23 years and include
A 22-yr southern sky survey for transient and variable radio sources using the Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope
We describe a 22-year survey for variable and transient radio sources, performed with archival images taken with the Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope (MOST). This survey covers 2775deg 2 of
ASGARD: A LARGE SURVEY FOR SLOW GALACTIC RADIO TRANSIENTS. I. OVERVIEW AND FIRST RESULTS
Searches for slow radio transients and variables have generally focused on extragalactic populations, and the basic parameters of Galactic populations remain poorly characterized. We present a large
THE CALTECH-NRAO STRIPE 82 SURVEY (CNSS) PAPER. I. THE PILOT RADIO TRANSIENT SURVEY IN 50 DEG2
We have commenced a multiyear program, the Caltech-NRAO Stripe 82 Survey (CNSS), to search for radio transients with the Jansky VLA in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Stripe 82 region. The CNSS will
Wide-field broad-band radio imaging with phased array feeds: a pilot multi-epoch continuum survey with ASKAP-BETA
The Boolardy Engineering Test Array is a 6 x 12 m dish interferometer and the prototype of the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP), equipped with the first generation of ASKAP's
SPECTROPOLARIMETRY WITH THE ALLEN TELESCOPE ARRAY: FARADAY ROTATION TOWARD BRIGHT POLARIZED RADIO GALAXIES
We have observed 37 bright, polarized radio sources with the Allen Telescope Array (ATA) to present a novel analysis of their Faraday rotation properties. Each source was observed during the

Long-duration Radio Transients Lacking Optical Counterparts are Possibly Galactic Neutron Stars
Recently, a new class of radio transients in the 5 GHz band and with durations of the order of hours to days, lacking any visible-light counterparts, was detected by Bower and collaborators. We
The Allen Telescope Array: The First Widefield, Panchromatic, Snapshot Radio Camera for Radio Astronomy and SETI
TLDR
The design elements of the ATA, the cost savings made possible by the use of commercial off-the-shelf components, and the cost/performance tradeoffs that eventually enabled this first snapshot radio camera are summarized.
