The Core Sites
The Gran Canaria RAEGE Core Site will be located in Cruz de Acusa, in a terrain of 10,000 m2 close to Artenara town, at an altitude of 1,100 m, in the island of Gran Canaria (Canary Islands).
The works for the construction of the VGOS-type radio telescope will begin at the end of 2019. This future Core Site will also house a control building, an auxiliary building for power supply, and a gravimeter building. The station will be equipped with a new generation wide-band receiver (2-14 GHz) built in Gran Canaria, in cooperation with the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC-IDETIC).
