The Sardinia radio telescope (SRT) is a project proposed by the Institute of Radio Astronomy (IRA, in Bologna, Italy). The SRT with a diameter of 64 m will be the third and largest Italian radio telescope. Designed to accommodate several instruments with a frequency coverage from 0.30 GHz to 100 GHz. In addition to the radio astronomy science applications, this instrument will be used for deep space communication missions in conjunction with the Italian Space Agency, as well as for geodynamic studies. The configuration of the Sardinia radio telescope is a symmetrical shaped Gregorian system with an aperture diameter of 64 m, and a 7.9 m diameter subreflector.
