The South African Radio Astronomy Observatory (SARAO) manages the radio astronomy observatories located in the Karoo (Northern Cape) and Hartbeestfontein (Gauteng). The objective of this tender is to appoint a service provider to render security services for the SKA site in the Karoo.
The NRF acquired two farms during 2007 to provide for the construction of the KAT-7 and MeerKat Radio telescope. During 2012, South Africa was appointed as one of the two countries to host the SKA Radio Telescope. To provide for the construction and protection of the SKA Radio Telescope, the NRF acquired additional land over a 2-year period from 2015 to 2017. The SKA site now covers 135 245 hectares in extent.
