Abstract:

In the quest to operationalise the next-generation infrastructure that pioneers advancement in state-of-the-art, as regards synthesis array radio telescopes of global repute, the square kilometre array (SKA) assumes significance as the. The science case for the SKA stems from addressing some of the fundamental mysteries in physics at the micro- and macrocosm levels, in the form of Key Science Projects (KSP)s. SKA design and evaluation tasks over novel challenges to the study of array configurations in the spatial. In this paper, the various instrument design specifications are discussed for relative merits and adaptability for the SKA, by invoking well-founded and established array-design and optimization principles offered on a dedicated user-friendly software platform.
