Preliminary Feasibility Study of a Dome C Radioantenna
European Industrial Engineering Srl, Mestre (VE), Italy
As science makes progress, proposing new discoveries every day, it is more and more interesting for the astronomical world to perform sub-millimeter observations from very suitable terrestrial sites, due to the purity of the air as well as to other environmental factors. A site with these characteristics has been identified in the area of the DOME C in the South Pole. The problems, both technical and logistic, that the installation of a radio antenna in the South Pole requires, are easily understandable. Proceeding at the same rate as the progress of science, also the technological and industrial capacities improve, so that the problems that the realization of a sub-millimiter Observatory in the South Pole implies, can be overcome. This is a summary of a Preliminary Feasibility Study of the AST (Antarctic Sub-millimeter Telescope) Radioantenna that is intended to be installed at Dome C.
