Projet AENEAS (H2020)
E-INFRASTRUCTURES FOR ASTRONOMY WITH THE SKA
Date de début de projet :
Domaine scientifique principal : Terre & Espace
Résumé / Présentation
The objective of the AENEAS project is to develop a concept and design for a distributed, federated European Science Data
Centre (ESDC) to support the astronomical community in achieving the scientific goals of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA).
The scientific potential of the SKA radio telescope is unprecedented and represents one of the highest priorities for the
international scientific community. By the same token, the large scale, rate, and complexity of data the SKA will generate,
present challenges in data management, computing, and networking that are similarly world-leading. SKA Regional Centres
(SRC) like the ESDC will be a vital resource to enable the community to take advantage of the scientific potential of the SKA.
Within the tiered SKA operational model, the SRCs will provide essential functionality which is not currently provisioned within
the directly operated SKA facilities. AENEAS brings together all the European member states currently part of the SKA project
as well as potential future EU SKA national partners, the SKA Organisation itself, and a larger group of international partners
including the two host countries Australia and South Africa.
