Joint Laboratory for Radio Astronomy Technology

The JLRAT (Joint Laboratory for Radio Astronomy Technology, between NAOC & CETC54) was established on January 12, 2010. The group is aiming to develop radio astronomy technology at the frontier, that combines scientific and engineering research in a new way, and to build a platform for astronomical technology development and research and talent training. As the initiator, we have participated in the "Square Kilometre Array" (SKA) international cooperation since 1993, and strive to become a national key laboratory for radio astronomy technology.
