Details on Acronym: SUMSS SUMSS (Sydney University Molonglo Sky Survey)
Object:(Rad) (SIMBAD class: Radio = Radio-source)
Note:Using the Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope (MOST) with its upgraded wide-field capability, the survey covers 8000 square degrees from -30 degrees declination southwards. The survey resolution and sensitivity (1-sigma noise limit 1 mJy) are well-matched to the NRAO VLA Sky Survey (NVSS) so that together NVSS and SUMSS will provide a complete survey of the radio sky.
