The MeerKAT Radio Telescope
February 01, 2018
This paper is a high-level description of the development, implementation and initial testing of the MeerKAT radio telescope and its subsystems. The rationale for the design and technology choices is presented in the context of the requirements of the MeerKAT Large-scale Survey Projects. A technical overview is provided for each of the major telescope elements, and key specifications for these components and the overall system are introduced. The results of selected receptor qualification tests are presented to illustrate that the MeerKAT receptor exceeds the original design goals by a significant margin.
