HIRAX

(Hydrogen Intensity and Real-time Analysis Experiment)
(radio telescope array 21 cm surveying)

HIRAX (for Hydrogen Intensity and Real-time Analysis Experiment) is a radio telescope array under construction in South Africa to survey the redshifted 21cm line from distant galaxy clusters, to map large scale structure and to detect baryon acoustic oscillations. It is to consist of 1024 6-meter dishes, receiving 400MHz to 800MHz. Operation of a subset is planned for as early as 2019 and completion of the array in the next couple of years.
