Haystack Radio Telescope

The Haystack 37-meter telescope has been upgraded by MIT Lincoln Laboratory to operate as a radar at 95 GHz. This update greatly enhanced the capabilities of radio astronomy as well, opening the 85-115 GHz frequency range for our users. A PDF document detailing the upgrade can be accessed below.

Haystack Upgrade Program

In the 1990s, the old Haystack Antenna surface was adjusted using holography at 12 GHz. The surface accuracy of the new upgraded antenna was checked using holography at 19 GHz.
