WP3 is led by the SPDO Site Engineer, Rob Milenaar. The purpose of WP3 is to inform the decision making process leading to final selection of the SKA site. This will be accomplished by carrying out further measurements and studies of the characteristics of the two sites short-listed by the International SKA Steering Committee; by investigating infrastructure deployment costs and timescales, and by carrying out an analysis of scientific, technical and operational risks associated with locating the SKA at each of the short-listed sites in Australia and Southern Africa.

WP3 will end on 31 March 2012.
