Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy

The Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy (CIRA; https://astronomy.curtin.edu.au/), which is located in Perth, Western Australia is a multi-disciplinary research institute working to reveal the mysteries of our universe. Astrophysicists work side by side with engineers and computer scientists to develop and exploit world-leading instrumentation, tools and techniques designed to probe the farthest reaches of space. Our mission is to improve our understanding of the universe and our place in it. In pursuing its goals, CIRA strives to translate research outcomes into impacts with benefits outside of radio astronomy research.

CIRA develops, operates and maintains instrumentation designed to probe the farthest reaches of the universe. The instruments are deployed at the Murchison Radio Astronomy Observatory—a CSIRO facility located in a remote part of Western Australia’s Mid-West Region, chosen for its isolation from the radio-frequency noise produced by human populations. The primary instruments CIRA operates at the MRO are the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA; http://mwatelescope.org/), and two prototypes of the low frequency element of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA; http://skatelescope.org/).
