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) 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
