The Planned Space Science Utilizations of the New Sardinia 64-m Radio Telescope

  title={The Planned Space Science Utilizations of the New Sardinia 64-m Radio Telescope},
  author={Roberto Ambrosini and Sami W. Asmar and Pietro Bolli and Enrico Flamini},
  journal={Proceedings of the IEEE},
This paper describes the technical excellence of the Sardinia Radio Telescope (SRT) design, development status, and the scientific plans foreseen by the Italian Space Agency (ASI) for deep space tracking, radio science, and related scientific opportunities such as near-Earth objects (NEO) and space debris monitoring. SRT, when functioning as a ground tracking station, will eventually provide operational support to spacecraft at four frequencies simultaneously: X-band uplink and downlink as well… CONTINUE READING
