ASTRON & IBM Center for Exascale Technology


The ASTRON & IBM Center for Exascale Technology is a research centre, located in Dwingeloo, Drenthe on the Campus of ASTRON, the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy. At this centre ASTRON and IBM jointly carry out fundamental research into computing technologies needed to develop the SKA radio telescope in the second half of this decade and the first half of the next decade. The collaboration is funded through the DOME project and focuses on three main areas:

-       Green Computing (extreme performance at minor energy costs)

-       Nano-photonics (data transport power reduction over short and long distances)

-       Data & Streaming (real time processing of massive data amounts)

This project offers exciting opportunities for innovative research in radio astronomy instrumentation, computer science and signal processing.
