K-band Phased Array Feed

This wiki was co-opted from the previous KbandFPA project. To find those links, go to the Old Web Home


The intent of this web is to gather together resources related to a collaboration between West Virginia University (WVU) departments of astronomy and engineering, and the Green Bank Observatory (GBO) to develop an (IEEE) K-band (18-26.5 GHz) Phased Array Feed. The intent is to provide a system which will provide between 5-10x increase in survey speed compared to the existing seven pixel K-band Focal Plane (individual feed-horn) Array (KFPA).


If you have any questions concerning any of the above, send mail to or call Richard Prestage (rprestag at nrao.edu, 304-456-2222).
