MHz Astronomy Development Lab.

The focus at the lab is on low frequency radio astronomy, primarily on application to 21cm cosmology but with a broad interest in whatever else can be done with such instruments. We also support space projects, including the cubesats SPARCS, Phoenix, the ASU Tracking station and the  ASU Interplanetary Initiative “Space Maker Space” (currently under construction).
