“The panel unanimously concludes that the PDR has been successfully passed and congratulates the project teams.” These were the findings of
the panel of international experts who conducted the Preliminary Design Review (PDR) for the 64-dish MeerKAT array during July 2011.

The PDR is an important milestone, verifying that the system design satisfies the system requirements. It establishes the design baseline, from which the requirements of the various subsystems are derived.
