Initiator: ASTRON Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy

eu  SNN

This project was co-financed by the EU, the European Fund for Regional Development and the Northern Netherlands Provinces (SNN), and EZ/KOMPAS.


LOFAR-UK is a consortium of more than fifteen UK scientific/academic institutions, with the goal of joining the LOFAR project by siting antennae stations in the UK and transporting the data for correlation in the Netherlands via high-speed internet. LOFAR-UK has generated an extremely broad interest, far beyond the traditional radio astronomy groups, and has raised sufficient funds to purchase an initial LOFAR station for siting in the UK (at Chilbolton).

For more details on the LOFAR:UK Consortium please visit their homepage.




ASTRON initiated LOFAR as a new and innovative effort to force a breakthrough in sensitivity for astronomical observations at radio-frequencies below 250 MHz.
