  Description     : CASA modules needed for processing synthesis data

Aperture synthesis or synthesis imaging is a type of interferometry that
mixes signals from a collection of telescopes to produce images having the
same angular resolution as an instrument the size of the entire
collection. At each separation and orientation, the lobe-pattern of the
interferometer produces an output which is one component of the Fourier
transform of the spatial distribution of the brightness of the observed
object. The image (or "map") of the source is produced from these
measurements. Astronomical interferometers are commonly used for
high-resolution optical, infrared, submillimetre and radio astronomy

It will maintained within the Debian Astronomy Working Group. A git repository
will be created on alioth [1].
