HOMER Pro: Helping to Build the World’s Largest Radio Telescope

HOMER Pro, the microgrid optimization platform, has been playing an important role in deploying one of the most ambitious science projects ever conceived: The Square Kilometer Array (SKA). The Square Kilometer Array is a massive radio telescope co-located in Australia and South Africa, an international collaborative effort designed to give astronomers a glimpse of the earliest era in the formation of the universe, the billion year period after the Big Bang.
