CSIRO, Australia's national science agency, operates a number of world-class radio astronomy observatories that are collectively known as the Australia Telescope National Facility or ATNF. The facility offers a powerful view of the southern hemisphere radio spectrum and supports world-leading research by Australian and international astronomers. CSIRO also manages the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory, where the Square Kilometre Array telescope infrastructure in Australia is to be centred. Australia Telescope National Facility
