The 16th IVS NICT Technology Development Center Symposium

 As an activity of Technology Development Center of IVS (International VLBI Service for Geodesy and Astrometry), NICT has been organizing annual symposium focused on Technology development related with space geodetic techniques. Proceedings of the symposium have been published as IVS NICT-TDC News (http://www2.nict.go.jp/sts/stmg/ivstdc/news-index.html) and delivered to domestic and international institutes and individuals working on VLBI and space geodesy.

One of the recent research subject of technology development in VLBI and in radio astronomy is broadband observation. NICT is conducting a new broadband observation technique named GALA-V for a target of distant frequency comparison. This broadband observation system is intended to be compatible with the next generation geodetic VLBI system VGOS. The subject of symposium is not limited only VLBI, but also single dish observation technique for radio astronomy, space geodetic technique and research result including GNSS, SLR and, local tie observations. We welcome contributions from broad field of view in these research subject.
