The Australian SKA Regional Centre will enable science with SKA data in Australia.

The Australian-hosted SKA-low will produce around 300 PB per year of data that science teams around the globe will need to readily access.

SKA member states are forming a collaborative network of SKA Regional Centres (SRCs) to design, build, deliver, and operate end-to-end support for science data products, archives, and associated services.

SRCs will:

  • Provide data flow and data dissemination solutions from the SKA to users;
  • Store, publish and curate SKA data;
  • Post-process and analyse SKA data products;
  • Provide SKA data user support.

Once established, the SRCs will form a Regional Centre Alliance (RCA).

Current activity towards the Australian SKA Regional Centre is detailed on the AusSRC Design Study Program page.
