Digital Signal Processing in Radio Astronomy

An NSF Research Experience for Teachers Program

The West Virginia University (WVU) Lane Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering,
the WVU Center for Gravitational Waves and Cosmology, and the Green Bank Observatory
(GBO) in Green Bank, WV, is offering a Research Experience for Teachers program: Digital Signal
Processing in Radio Astronomy (DSPIRA). This RET program will provide high school teachers
with hands on experience using high quality open source software development tools, in both
research engineering and educational settings. Through a six week summer program, and academic
year follow-up, the teachers will gain experience in the engineering method, via involvement
in the research, design, development, and prototyping of digital signal processing (DSP) techniques
and applications targeted for the next generation of radio telescopes.
