Abstract

The Sardinia Radio Telescope (SRT) is a modern, fully-steerable 64-m dish located in San Basilio, Sardinia (Italy). It is characterized by an active surface that allows it to cover a wide range of radio frequencies (300 MHz to 100 GHz). During SRT’s commissioning phase, we installed the hardware and software needed for pulsar observations. Since then, SRT has taken part in Large European Array for Pulsars and European Pulsar Timing Array observations for the purpose of gravitational wave detection. We have installed a new S-band receiver that will allow us to search for pulsars in the Galactic Center. We also plan to combine our efforts to search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) with the search for pulsars and Fast Radio Bursts.
