Murchison Widefield Array

(MWA)
(low frequency radio telescope)

The Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) is a radio telescope operating at 80-300MHz, aimed at detecting the hydrogen 21cm line redshifted from the epoch of reionization (much like LOFAR). It was completed in 2012 in Western Australia and has a collecting area of 512 square meters in 128 antennas (in the first phase, MWA-128). It is at the Murchison Radio Astronomy Observatory (MRO) north of Perth.
