      Astronomy Ionosphere Cosmic  Rays The  Unknown LOFAR  staAon Beamformed Data
  2. What is ARTEMIS? A software/hardware backend to process streaming data,

    used for single-station science at LOFAR-UK, Nancay, Bonn + Onsala. Software: AMPP, the artemis modular pelican pipelines AMPP: prototype for streaming processing for the SKA and its pathfinders. 35 TB/day today. Tomorrow? Software: Pelican, a light and scalable framework for distributed streaming processing. Hardware: AMPP and Pelican have native CPU and GPU support AMPP is not a UDP packet recorder AMPP is not limited to LOFAR AMPP is documented and open to developers H5 data product that conforms to LOFAR standard
  3. Can be used for 100% of the time

  4. None
  5. LOFAR international stations • Large collecting area (96 coherently added

    dipoles), high sensitivity. 9 international stations = superterp • Very fast sampling rate (5 ns), reduced to 5.12 µs for the station beams. • Large fields of view, 10 to 100s of square degrees. • Not used for all LOFAR KSPs.
  6. Dispersion searches DM 0 N2 or N logN process per
