The High Time Resolution Universe (HTRUn)

The High Time Resolution (HTRU) survey is using thParkes radio telescope to survey the entire southern sky for pulsars and fast transients, using new digital filterbank technology. The sources discovered in the HTRU survey can constrain the equation of state of nuclear matter and can provide sensitive tests of general relativity, while the associated instrumentation allows implementation of nereal-time interference mitigation strategies.
