Definitely; lots of data storage too. The Murchison Widefield Array
(MWA) is the precursor project to Australia's low frequency SKA
efforts, and Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP) I believe is (part of?)
the precursor to South Africa's medium frequency SKA efforts, and they
both make significant use of Pawsey resources. Pawsey 2.0 (hardware
refit, same building[1]) will move closer to what we need for full
blown SKA although the numbers are truly off the charts. I think there
was a PLUG presentation by a SKA person a while back...  Yes, found it
