Deuterium Array

Summary

MIT Haystack Observatory developed an electronically steerable, multibeam array optimized for the 327 MHz line of deuterium. The project involved the development of digital receivers and interference rejection techniques which may benefit future arrays like Square Killometer Array (SKA) and Low Frequency Array (LOFAR). The project which is being jointly funded by the National Science Foundation under the Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) program with matching funds from MIT. The array was operated from June 2004 through June 2006. In July 2006 the array was taken apart and the electronics stored for possible future use in New Zealand.
