Smart Antenna and Radio Astronomy Systems

Welcome Research Assistants!

This page will get you started as new team member, as well as give lab-specific information to help you in your research work.

First Time Set-up

  1. Sign up for access to our Gitlab and Mattermost. Contact a Gitlab admin (Mitch Burnett @mcb or Carson Brown @carsonrb) on your team and give them:

    • Desired username
    • Email

    Gitlab is our git server website and system. Mattermost is our chat server, similar to Slack, and has a downloadable app.

  2. Get access to the code projects you need. Contact the project lead (or a gitlab admin).

  3. Get access to the 'warnickshare' CAEDM group. It shows up on your J: drive and has many resources used across projects (e.g. Altium libraries)

  4. Get access to the lab on the 5th floor of the Clyde building. Get the MERS code from the shop. A note from a professor or walk-in with a senior grad student is required.
