MeerKAT Observing Programme

MeerKAT with 64 antennas and equipped with L-band receivers is scheduled to be available in 2018. As with equivalently complex new facilities, the amount of time available for observing is uncertain initially but will increase with time. New receivers and capabilities will also be developed after 2018.

The competitively awarded observing programme for MeerKAT during at least the initial 5 years will consist of Large Survey Projects (LSPs) and Open Time projects. There will also be a small amount of Director’s Discretionary Time (DDT).
