Abstract
Radio astronomical observations are ordinarily aimed at reaching a specific scientific goal. Radio telescopes are equipped with a certain number of receivers and back-ends, and the choice of the most suitable receiver/back-end combination in order to best match the scientific application of interest is up to the astronomer. However, the opportunity to process the incoming signal, simultaneously, with different back-ends, thus providing different observational 'points of view', may indeed provide additional scientific results. In this paper, we describe a system, developed for the Sardinia Radio Telescope (SRT), which allows the observer to take profit of such a capability.
