Small-Sized Telescope Harmonization Process and Status

CTA is a large science infrastructure with many individual units and a high degree of complexity. There are many good reasons to design and implement the simplest and most harmonized system possible. One prominent area concerns the Small-Sized Telescope (SST) where harmonization is of very high importance due to the large number of units to be built, operated and maintained.



Building CTA: December 2018 Project Office Update

Building the world’s largest observatory is no small task.
