Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy

The Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy (CIRA) is Curtin’s link with the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR). We are proud to have helped bring the Square Kilometre Array to Australia and we look forward to working with our partners to make the telescope a reality.

CIRA covers a wide range of projects in the area of radio astronomy, including aspects of next generation telescopes such as the MWA and ASKAP as well as the SKA at the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory. Learn more about our research and people at the links above.
