Description
The CoDR is conducted at the end of the concept phase. The aim of the CoDR is to confirm that the ‘problem’ has been thoroughly explored and is well understood. Candidate technologies, technology trends, technology options, the status of work already done and still planned by precursors, design studies and other pathfinder arrays is reviewed at this point. At SKA CoDRs the concepts presented may include a range of options. The CoDR review will focus on whether first order solutions have been identified and are appropriate. Work in advancing fundamental technologies known to be critical to the element may also be reported if this is supportive of the concept and its feasibility. Concept Design Reviews are therefore the culmination of the Concept phase of development where the demonstration of feasibility is the objective. In subsequent phases of the project technology options will be investigated and selections will be made. The Review is of documents that detail the work done over the duration of the study. The presentations are intended to guide the Panel in their review of the work and to provide a platform for clarification. Observers are invited for the purposes of Project wide co-ordination and dissemination of Project products. An opportunity will be provided for observers to review CoDR documents and provide written feedback both before and immediately after the review sessions. As the sessions themselves take the form of presentations for the benefit of the Panel and time is limited, we ask that Observer comments be written so that maximum time is available for Panel questions to be answered.
