To the EPICS Community,

The Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) was officially opened in Western Australia's remote Murchison region on Friday 5 October 2012. Federal Minister for Science and Research, Senator Chris Evans, began one of the world's biggest data downloads by officially opening the telescope at the ceremony attended by international ambassadors, industry and government representatives and local stakeholders.

I invite all the EPICS community to watch the webcast from this link http://webcast.viostream.com/?viocast=6134&auth=462ad6d8-6d19-4810-88a0-a38c8a1fe008

This was a very important milestone within the ASKAP project. This is by no means the end and it is just the beginning as engineering and science commissioning of the instrument continues. Over the next few years we expect to deliver excellent science and build technologies for the next big project within the radio astronomy community, the SKA.

I would like to thanks the entire EPICS community for its strong support, collaboration and commitment to keep EPICS at the forefront of control systems technologies and facilitate its adoption in many new facilities like us. EPICS and CSS are very important technologies to us, and both have enabled us to deliver and continue development the control system of this major radio astronomical instrument.

Hope you enjoy the webcast and keep an eye at the end for a glimpse of the CSS BOY GUI we used during the event.

Best regards,
  JC Guzman
ASKAP Telescope Monitor and Control Team Leader
