Allen Telescope Array
(array of radio telescopes in northern California for SETI)
The Allen Telescope Array is a radio telescope array of 42
6.1-meter dishes at the Hat Creek Radio Observatory
in northern California,
owned by the SETI Institute (an organization supporting SETI
research, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence).
It has a wide field of view and covers frequencies
0.5-11.2 GHz. In addition to SETI research, it is
suitable for other radio astronomy applications including
21-cm line observations, as well as fast radio burst study,
the latter of both SETI and astrophysics interest.
The 42 dishes (ATA-42) went operational in 2007, and plans from the
beginning have been to increase it in stages to 350 dishes (ATA-350).
