EMBRACE (Electronic MultiBeam Radio Astronomy ConcEpt) is a prototype telescope for the phase 2 of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project. It's the first dense phased array for radioastronomy in the GHz frequency range (initially planned for covering the 0.5-1.5 GHz, mid-frequency band of SKA). It is composed of two sites, one at the Nançay radio telescope station in France, and one near the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope antennas in Netherlands.
