Abstract: This paper describes the current vision of the as well as some thoughts on the LWA as of September 2004. This concept is certain to evolve as we work towards the actual construction of the LWDA and the LWA. As envisioned, the LWA will provide unprecedented sensitivity and angular resolution in low frequency bands to radio astronomers allowing observations that were previously unavailable. We will investigate the LWDA by starting at the station level and working down to the component level of detail. This treatment should provide persons new to the LWA the “big picture” first and then move towards the details.
