    Experiment to Detect the Global EoR Signature (EDGES)

    The Experiment to Detect the Global EoR Signature (EDGES) is a collaboration between ASU and MIT, with funding from the U.S. NSF and site support from the Australian CSIRO. The project aims to detect the global (all-sky) 21 cm signal through observations with individual dipole antennas. EDGES is located at the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory (MRO) in Western Australia (-26.7148, 116.6044), which is the same site used by Australian SKA Precursor (ASKAP), the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA), and the future SKA Low-Frequency Aperture Array (LFAA). This location was chosen due to its radio-quiet conditions below 200 MHz. The experiment consists of two instruments: 1) a high-band instrument sensitive to 100-200 MHz, and 2) a low-band instrument sensitive to 50-100 MHz. The instruments are nearly identical except for their antennas and ground planes, which are scaled copies.
