Optimising SKA1-Mid scale-dependent sensitivity

Abstract:

In this report we study the scale dependent sensitivity of the SKA1-Mid baseline design. We also propose changes to the baseline design that enhance the sensitivity at smaller angular scales (e.g. 0.4-1 arcsec at 650MHz) without compromising the performance at larger scales. The changes we propose are guided by the SKA1-Mid level-zero science requirements [2], which suggest that very long baselines (> 150km) are not necessary to achieve the SKA1-Mid science objectives. The layouts we propo...
