The EAARO Observatory systems are of a unique modular design allowing our Detection, Receiving, Signal Processing and Data Logging components to be quickly configured for a variety of observations and experiments.

For ease of setup and operation the system comprises an array of antennas (detectors), an amplification section, a receiving section, a signal processing section and a data logging recording section organised neatly in air cooled 19" equipment cabinets.

All receiving & signal processing equipment is interconnected via a patching system for complete flexibility and making reconfiguration of the system possible in very short time frame if required.

Our observatory will also be equipped with a full set of Test, Measurement and Analysis equipment to assist with the calibration of the observatory equipment and for the future development of new technology with a focus on Antenna Design.

Professional Grade Equipment

In order to reduce costs the majority of the componets that have been aquired to build the EAARO technical systems are recycled but of a professional grade. Please see a sample list below:

Containerised Control Rooms

EAARO utilises a number of containerised control rooms for ease of set-up, and operation. The current configuration consists of 2 No. 8ft x 7ft Control Rooms for observatory operations, and 1 no. 20' x 8' Control Room for Radio & Data Housing.

The two small (8' x 7') containers are fully self contained and include electrical, heating, and air conditioning systems. A 24V DC UPS ensures continuous mission critical operation.

The larger 20' container is a secure housing for EAARO's electronic systems.
