The skd file extension is associated with the VEX file format. The SKD 'VEX-file' format (VEX = 'VLBI Experiment'), has been invented to prescribe a complete description of a VLBI experiment, including scheduling, data-taking and correlation..

This includes all setup and configuration information, as well as the schedule of observations. VEX is designed to be independent of any particular VLBI data-acquisition system or correlator, and is expandable to accommodate new equipment, recording and correlation modes. Every attempt has been made to consider the requirements and concerns of both the astronomy and geodetic VLBI communities in the construction of the VEX format.

This skd file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.

Help how to open:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .skd file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
