Observing Facilities

MIT Haystack Observatory's primary research facilities located at in Westford, MA, include a set of large radio antennas used for radio astronomy, geodetic VLBI, and ionospheric radar measurements.

In addition, three other important facilities are part of the Haystack Observatory, namely

The Haystack Observatory also provides access to its research facilities for educational projects and operates a set of small radio telescopes and interferometers for undergraduate and pre-college research experiences. The Observatory also hosts instrumentation from collaborating institutions such as a digital ionospheric sounder (digisonde) from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, and an all-sky camera from Boston University.
