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
