Blind calibration of radio astronomical phased arrays

Stefan Wijnholds
ASTRON

Radio astronomical phased arrays are usually calibrated under the assumption that the observed scene is known. That assumption may not hold if a new frequency window is opened (for example in the case of the currently planned antenna arrays in space observing below 10 MHz) or when there are unexpected source signals such as transients or radio frequency interference (RFI). In this talk, I present recent work on blind calibration of radio astronomical phased assuming that the observed scene is sparse. The resulting method applies sparse reconstruction techniques to the measured array covariance matrices instead of time series data. I discuss the computation speed-up provided by this shift from signal domain to power domain and explain how phase transition diagrams need to be reinterpreted in this context
