WP6 JRA BRAND EVN

The main objective of BRAND EVN (BRoad bAND EVN) is to develop and build a prototype broad-band digital receiver, which will cover a frequency range from 1.5 GHz to 15.5 GHz (1:10 range, chosen to include the 2 cm VLBA band). The BRAND frontend can be adapted to different EVN antennas. The backend part can also be used for other receivers with a RF frequency or IF range between 0-16 GHz. (BRAND EVN Description).

The BRAND EVN parter: MPG, ASTRON, INAF, OSO, UAH-IGN, VUC

The BRAND EVN tasks:

  • WP6.1: Feasibility survey of EVN antennas [UAH, OSO, INAF]
  • WP6.2: BRAND receiver frontend [MPG, INAF, OSO, UAH]
  • WP6.3: BRAND backend [INAF, MPG, ASTRON, VUC]
  • WP6.4: Control, recording and correlation software [INAF, MPG, OSO, ASTRON]
  • WP6.5: Integration at telescope and test observation [INAF, MPG, OSO, UAH]

This activity is lead by MPG - Leader W. Alef.
