Details
  • It was proposed to develop Low Frequency Array (LOFAR) radio telescope, which would capture weak radio signals from space.
  • This information was to enable scientists to study evolution of Universe in nearby stars & galaxies.
  • LOFAR was to be serene telescope with no moving parts & was to be network of small, stationary antennas that would be dotted in groups across about 400 km in radius & all linked by optic-fibre cable.
  • LOFAR radio telescope is designed to be operative in approximate frequency range of 30 200 MHZ & is low frequency complement to Square Kilometre Array (SKA) telescope, which is designed to cover range 150 MHZ to above 10 GHZ.
  • Proponents of this project were five scientists representing an international consortium.
  • Sites in USA (San Augustin in New Mexico) & Netherlands (Border-Odoorn region) were considered, but preferred was at Mileura Station in Mid West region as it had advantage of having very low level background radio signals.
  • Netherlands Foundation for Research in Astronomy has now abandoned consortium as Foundation was not prepared to contribute towards project being constructed outside Netherlands.
  • Construction had been expected to commence in 2006.
