Abstract

The Thousand Element Array (THEA) is a phased array system which was developed as a demonstrator in the framework of the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) at ASTRON. After a thorough description of the THEA system, results from a number of evaluation and demonstration measurements using four tiles having a total 256 receiving elements will be presented. These measurements highlighted aspects such as array beam forming, multifrequency multibeaming, calibration on a celestial source, detection of galactic neutral hydrogen and solar fringes. Based on these measurements a first assessment of the quality of the system was made. Furthermore the results have shown that the THEA system is suitable for use as an educational tool.
