Brief description: MeerKAT International GigaHertz Tiered Extragalactic Exploration survey
Description:

 This is a collaboration portal for the MIGHTEE project. 

MIGHTEE is a radio continuum survey which will be conducted with the South African SKA pathfinder telescope MeerKAT.  It aims to probe to much fainter flux densities (0.1–1 μJy beam−1 rms) than the EMU/WODAN surveys, over smaller areas (20deg2) at higher angular resolution, at an observing frequency of 950MHz - 1.7 GHz.

The MIGHTEE survey strategy will follows a tiered approach both in survey area and in sensitivity, using the longer baselines to be able to probe below the confusion limit of the shorter baseline surveys such as EMU and WODAN.

The higher sensitivity and resolution will enable exploration of AGN, SF galaxies, and galaxy clusters from the EoR through to the present day.
