Your chance to become a partner!

MAAT is currently under development and we are actively seeking partners for its construction. If you are interested to join please contact us.

The MAAT proposal submitted to the GTC Director and Steering Committee for its review on their January 21st, 2020 meeting has been developed through a fruitful collaboration of a group of scientists and engineers in Spain, Australia, Denmark, and Sweden led by Francisco Prada (MAAT Principal Investigator) at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (CSIC). Our optical scientist guru Robert Content (Australia Astronomical Observatory) designed the concept of the advanced mirror slicer IFU for OSIRIS. Enrique Pérez (IAA-CSIC), Luca Izzo (DARK, Copenhagen), and Ariel Goobar (OKC, Stockholm University) have contributed to outline the science objectives, and helped with the data and science simulations. The work presented in our proposal would have been impossible without the technical support and help of the GTC staff.
