The Caltech-Parkes-Swinburne Recorder (CPSR) was installed at the Parkes Radio-telescope in August of 1998. It is capable of continuously two-bit quadrature-sampling a 20 MHz bandpass in two polarizations, though other configurations are possible. Since its successful installation, over 17 Terabytes of observational data have been recorded. These data were processed using the Swinburne Baseband Processing System (SBPS), a suite of data management and reduction software executed using a Beowulf-style cluster of high-performance workstations. A description of CPSR and SBPS is presented herein, followed by a brief presentation of some results from the past year of observations, and an outline of possible future uses of the system.
