Operations and Usage

The Westford Radio Telescope participates mainly in the IVS geodesy and astrometry experiments. Specifically the telescope participates in the IVS-R1, IVS-R&D, RD-VLBA, and some IVS-T2 sessions. Information regarding these sessions can be found on the IVS website.

Other operations are scheduled in between sessions of the IVS to maximize the usage of the antenna. The e-VLBI project has used the Westford Telescope for development, and real-time transfers and correlation at a rate of 1 Gbps has been achieved.
