The Future of the European VLBI Network

  title={The Future of the European VLBI Network},
  author={Huib van Langevelde Joint Institute for Vlbi in Europe and Sterrewacht Leiden and Leiden University},
Guided by the recently published science case for the future of European VLBI, EVN2015, a roadmap for the future of the EVN is sketched out in this paper. The various desired technical improvements are being discussed with an emphasis on the role of e-VLBI. With this innovation new scientific capabilities are introduced. In this way the EVN is also positioned as an interesting platform for exercising new techniques and operational models, complementary to other SKA pathfinders. In return, the…

VLBI20-30: a scientific roadmap for the next decade. The future of the European VLBI Network

The science cases are reviewed in six chapters that cover the following broad areas: cosmology, galaxy formation and evolution, innermost regions of active galactic nuclei, explosive phenomena and transients, stars and stellar masers in the Milky Way, celestial reference frames and space applications, and the recommendations for future improvements.

The Sardinia Radio Telescope Upgrade to Telemetry, Tracking and Command: Beam Squint and Electromagnetic Compatibility Design

This paper describes the most recent improvements for the upcoming upgrade to telemetry, tracking and command (TT&C) capabilities for the Sardinia Radio Telescope (SRT), a 64-m antenna tailored for

Precise radio astrometry and new developments for the next-generation of instruments

A technique-led review of the progression of precise radio astrometry, from the first demonstrations, half a century ago, until to date and into the future, to predict the future potential astrometric performance and the instrumental requirements that must be provided to deliver these.

Precise radio astrometry and new developments for the next generation of instruments

We present a technique-led review of the progression of precise radio astrometry, from the first demonstrations, half a century ago, until to date and into the future. We cover the developments that

The Mark 5C VLBI Data System

The Mark 5C disk-based VLBI data system is being developed as the third-generation Mark 5 disk- based system, increasing the sustained data-recording rate capability to 4 Gbps, and will accept data from a standard 10 Gigabit Ethernet connection and be compatible with the emerging VL BI Data Interchange Format (VDIF) standard.
