If you have a question about this talk, please contact Simon Hodgkin.

The Square kilometre Array (SKA) will be a transformational science instrument delivering two orders of magnitude improvement in sensitivity over existing facilities and a mapping speed approaching a million times faster. In this talk I will start by discussing some of the key science which is driving the design of the SKA and also give an update on the project status. I will then consider how this science is driving th overall design of the instrument and briefly discuss some of the technical work we are doing here in Cambridge to make the SKA a reality.
