The Allen Telescope Array

The Allen Telescope Array is a joint effort between The SETI Institute and University of California at Berkeley. The array is currently under construction in Hat Creek, 300 miles north-east of San Francisco. The remote location ensures that interference from man-made radio sources is minimal.
The Allen Telescope Array (ATA), when finished, will consist of 350 six meter dishes covering the frequency range of 0.5-11 GHz instantaneously, and will be the first instrument dedicated to Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. 

Low Noise Factory is supplying the Low Noise Amplifiers for the ATA.
