We acknowledge the Wajarri Yamaji as the traditional owners of the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory (MRO) site and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) is a global big-science project to build the world’s largest and most capable radio telescope. During its more than 50 year lifetime, the SKA will expand our understanding of the universe and drive technological developments worldwide.


The Australian SKA Office coordinates Australia’s involvement in the SKA project through the Australian-New Zealand SKA Coordinating Committee.


The MRO and the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP) telescope are managed and operated by CSIRO.


The International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) is a joint venture between Curtin University and The University of Western Australia with strong support from the State Government of Western Australia and the Australian Government.


The Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) is an international collaboration led and operated by Curtin University. The EDA2 and AAVS1.5 test platforms are a collaboration with the Square Kilometre Array Office and are hosted by the MWA.
