Document Description
NJIT is proposing an expansion of the existing solar radio-telescope array which would entail the installation of 13 new antenna pads with associated two-meter radio-wave antennas distributed in a three-arm spiral configuration of radius 900 meters at the OVRO facility. The proposed OVSA Expansion Project would also include emplacement of a new modular control building, a limited number of access roads and cable trenching along the access roads. Both the existing OVRO antennas and proposed project antennas are passive radio-wave receptors.
