The Sydney-AAO Multi-object Integral-field spectrograph puts 13 fused hexabundles, each containing 61 fibres, across a square-degree field of view. SAMI will provide a comprehensive spatially-resolved view of galaxy evolution.
The Galaxy and Mass Assembly survey is a project to exploit the latest generation of ground-based and space-borne survey facilities to study cosmology and galaxy formation and evolution.
The Galactic Archaeology with HERMES survey is collecting stellar parameters and abundances for one million stars in the Milky Way. GALAH yields a comprehensive view of the formation & evolution of the Galaxy.
The Deep Extragalactic VIsible Legacy Survey is a spectroscopic campaign at the AAT aimed at bridging the near and distant Universe by producing the highest completeness survey of galaxies and groups at intermediate redshifts (0.3<z<1.0).
The Huntsman Telephoto Array's mission is to investigate faint structures of galaxies using off the shelf camera lenses.
The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS) is a major spectroscopic survey taking full advantage of the unique capabilities of the 2dF facility built by the Anglo-Australian Observatory.
The 6dF Galaxy Survey (6dFGS) has mapped the nearby universe over nearly half the sky. Its 136,304 spectra have yielded 110,256 new extragalactic redshifts and a new catalogue of 125,071 galaxies.
Since 2013, OzDES has used the Anglo-Australian Telescope to classify hundreds of transients, monitor active galactic nuclei, and obtain redshifts for tens of thousands of galaxies within the 10 deep fields of the Dark Energy Survey.
Taipan is a multi-object spectroscopic galaxy survey starting observations in late 2017 that will cover the whole southern sky and will obtain spectra for over 1 million galaxies in the local Universe (z<0.3) over 4 years.
RAVE (RAdial Velocity Experiment) is a multi-fiber spectroscopic astronomical survey of stars in the Milky Way using the 1.2-metre UK Schmidt Telescope of the Australian Astronomical Observatory (AAO).
Gaia is an ambitious mission to chart a three-dimensional map of our Galaxy, the Milky Way, in the process revealing the composition, formation and evolution of the Galaxy.
The WiggleZ survey analyzed the large-scale galaxy distribution in order to learn more about the nature of dark energy.
The Australia Telescope 20-GHz (AT20G) Survey is a blind survey of the whole southern sky at 20 GHz with the ATCA.
The Southern Parkes Large-Area Survey in Hydroxyl (SPLASH) is a sensitive, unbiased, and fully sampled survey of the southern Galactic plane and Galactic Centre in all four ground-state transitions of the hydroxyl (OH) radical.
