The Square Kilometer Array: Next Generation Sensor Networks as a Driver for HPC

SESSION: The Square Kilometer Array: Next Generation Sensor Networks as a Driver for HPC

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Chris Broekema, Rob Simmonds



The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope is a next generation sensor network to be built in western Australia and southern Africa from 2017. Designing the exascale computer systems required to process data from such instruments presents challenges due to huge amounts of data, high data rates, relatively low computational intensity and a limited power budget. Such computer systems can be considered data throughput machines applicable to a range of large scale big data processing tasks. The SKA Science Data Processor consortium invites the community to explore opportunities for collaboration, and offers an update of its current design status.
