Paper Abstract

The management of industry engagement has been one of the challenges in realising the AU$ 154M Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP). ASKAP has evolved both in scope and scale during its aggressive delivery timeline (2007 – 2012); furthermore its relationship to the proposed international Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope has had to be carefully managed to ensure expectations remained realistic. In this paper I describe how CSIRO has navigated these challenges, forging excellent working relationships with a range of national and international companies, complimented by the establishment of a supportive national industry consortium.
