Murchison Widefield Array

(low frequency radio telescope)

The Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) is a Radio Telescope operating at 80-300MHz, aimed at detecting the Hydrogen 21cm Line Redshifted from the Epoch of Reionization (much like Low-Frequency Array). It was completed in 2012 in Western Australia and has a collecting area of 512 square meters in 128 antennas (in the first phase, MWA-128). It is at the Murchison Radio Astronomy Observatory (MRO) north of Perth.
