The aim of this work was to prepare and optimize the currently deployed parts of the Askaryan Radio Array (ARA) for GZK neutrino detection. Various components of the hardware have been tested, programmed and calibrated and a data analysis has been performed to show that a neutrino search is possible and that a good sensitivity can be expected for the full ARA37 detector.
