  6. Technical Progress (highlights) next 18 months • DS 2 Preliminary Report on SKA configurations • DS 3: Report on site selection+phase transfer links, network analysis and report on MDA constructs • DS 4: 2-PAD design freeze • DS 5 First tile prototype is ready, 10-tile prototype in preparation • DS 6 BEST 1 is ready and BEST 2 well on the way • DS 7 Mid Term Review in Q3 2007 SKADS Workshop 2006
