Welcome to the LWA!
This is the LWA Consolidated Information Site designed to be a centralized resource for team members and other parties interested in the development of the Long Wavelength Array (LWA) in the Southwest.
The LWA is an effort to advance astronomy by using inexpensive antenna stations to build a very large aperture to probe the depths of space at the lowest frequencies - between 10 MHz and 88 MHz.
As we proceed with the project evaluation, we will endeavor to post at this website the latest information from conferences, technical memos and other contributions.
This project is a collaboration of the following institutions: UNM, VT, LANL, JPL, and NRL. NRAO and AFRL have also recently become involved in the project.
The LWA1 is now a University Radio Observatory
Support for operations and continuing development of the LWA1 is provided by the National Science Foundation under grant AST-1139974 of the University Radio Observatory program.
January 2013 - Cycle 3 Call for Proposals is out
Relevant information and the full call is posted at the Proposals page. Deadline for proposals is midnight MST February 15, 2013.
January 2013 - Recent results from the LWA1
Results from the Long Wavelength Array (station 1) were presented in January 2013 at the AAS meeting in Long Beach, CA
and at the URSI meeting in Boulder, CO.
