Radio astronomy

We've been doing some work for radio astronomy -- not on the astronomy as such, but on the computing and networking that will needed to support the new generation of high-end astronomy arrays that are being designed and built, such as the Square Kilometre Array.

The idea is to be able to use existing Internet technologies -- fibre, Ethernet, IP -- but engineer their use to support very high speeds, using a transport protocol that we've designed, called Saratoga, that is in use to transfer imaging data from IP-enabled remote-sensing satellites.

So, here's Taking Saratoga from space-based ground sensors to ground-based space sensors.
