Radiodetection of Askaryan emission in dielectric media, such as polar ice, is one of the most promising avenues of detecting the expected extremely-high-energy neutrinos of astrophysical and cosmogenic origin. A phased array of antennas enables an increase effective gain (and therefore sensitivity) while maintaining a small profile to facilitate deployment down a borehole in the ice. Recent efforts to develop a neutrino-searching phased array will be shared, including results from an in-situ test on the Greenland ice sheet and anechoic chamber tests.
