Abstract

The first phase of the ATLAS (Australia Telescope Large Area Survey) project surveyed a total 7 square degrees down to 30 µJy rms at 1.4 GHz and is the largest sensitive radio survey ever attempted. We report on the scientific achievements of ATLAS to date and plans to extend the project as a path finder for the proposed EMU (Evolutionary map of the Universe) project which has been designed to use ASKAP (Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder).
