Next Generation CASA

The CASA team is working to design and prototype the next generation of Common Astronomy Software Applications (CASA) for radio interferometry data reduction. The next generation CASA technology stack invests heavily in Python-based frameworks for parallelization and data manipulation, including Dask and Xarray, along with a new functional design paradigm. This approach simplifies the code base to speed development, improve reliability, and reduce maintenance. Prototyping efforts are currently underway to include a public demonstration package available in the near future.
