Madagascar is one of the South African SKA partner countries on the AVN project. Located 50 km away from Antananarivo, the city of Arivonimamo hosts the old telecon dish to be converted into a radio telescope as part of the pan-African project. Despite the progress being made and various opportunities and support from the AVN and DARA community, there are still outstanding issues that need to be addressed such as the local ability to handle and analyse huge quantities of data collected well before successful conversion of the dish.
