I-LOFAR

HEAnet and Science Foundation Ireland Projects

The Irish Low Frequency Array (I-LOFAR) has been awarded €1.4 million from Science Foundation Ireland in January 2016. This funding will allow for the building of a cutting-edge radio telescope at Birr Castle, which will connect Ireland to the International LOFAR Telescope, utilising HEAnet’s high-speed network. HEAnet is providing a 10Gbit/s circuit for the I-Lofar project from Birr Castle to the LOFAR core node at Groningen in the Netherlands.
