(late 1990s radio survey in search of pulsars)

The Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey was an late 1990s astronomical survey to identify pulsars. It was carried out with the Parkes Observatory MB20 multibeam receiver (developed for 21-cm line, a grid of thirteen feed horns, defining a pattern of thirteen beams). Analysis of the data to identify pulsars extended into the 2000s. Hundreds of pulsars were identified.
