Allen Telescope Array

(ATA)
(array of radio telescopes in northern California for SETI)

The Allen Telescope Array is a radio telescope array of 42 6.1-meter dishes at the Hat Creek Radio Observatory in northern California, owned by the SETI Institute (an organization supporting SETI research, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence). It has a wide field of view and covers frequencies 0.5-11.2 GHz. In addition to SETI research, it is suitable for other radio astronomy applications including 21-cm line observations. The 42 dishes (ATA-42) went operational in 2007, and plans from the beginning have been to increase it in stages to 350 dishes (ATA-350).
