The Sardinia Radio Telescope is approaching to its official inauguration. Nowadays, the technical staff is accomplishing the last remaining activities to set up and integrate the microwave receivers, the digital processing systems and all the equipment necessary to reach a top level in the international scenario of large radio telescopes. Even if the radio telescope is still along the technical commissioning, SRT has already performed its first astronomical detection. This early scientific result opens exciting perspectives for the time when SRT will be in the full operational phase.

Abstract

The Sardinia Radio Telescope is approaching to its official inauguration. Nowadays, the technical staff is accomplishing the last remaining activities to set up and integrate the microwave receivers, the digital processing systems and all the equipment necessary to reach a top level in the international scenario of large radio telescopes. Even if the radio telescope is still along the technical commissioning, SRT has already performed its first astronomical detection. This early scientific result opens exciting perspectives for the time when SRT will be in the full operational phase.
