EAARO unveils plans to build the UK's first independently-operated back scatter meteor radar.
The East Anglian Astrophyical Research Organisation (EAARO) is currently developing plans to build the UK's first independently-operated Back Scatter Meteor Radar.
Using a 5 element interferometer to determine position and strength, and two outlying stations to determine trajectory, EAARO's accurate measurements of reflected radiation will provide valuable data to share with the scientific community about the behavior of meteors entering the atmosphere above the UK.
Krypton TV sponsors EAARO with provision of high speed satellite internet service.
Krypton TV recently donated a high speed satellite internet system that will enhance operations at EAARO's radio observatory. This is a huge improvement on our previous 3G service, providing a much needed increase in speed and bandwidth.
Most of the observatory can be controlled via the internet, with provision for real-time monitoring and data transfers.
KickSat Mission Update
The team at EAARO (East Anglian Astrophysical Research Organisation) is delighted to have been involved in Zac Manchester’s recent KickSat satellite mission.
Our goal was to detect and decode the radio signals transmitted by the Sprites using bespoke ground station facilities at our radio observatory site in Hertfordshire, UK.
