AuScope VLBI Radio Telescope

The AuScope Very Long Baseline Inferometry (VLBI) array comprises three 12 metre radio telescopes in Katherine (Northern Territory), Mt Pleasant (Tasmania), and Yarragadee (Western Australia).

This network underpins all space based observation, navigation and timing applications in Australia.

The VLBI array is operated by the University of Tasmania, and provides all data to the International VLBI Service, a collaborative body of representatives that operate or support VLBI arrays.
