“ESCAPE to the Future” Event Recommits JIVE and ESCAPE Partners in Collaboration for Open Science

On Wednesday 26 October JIVE joined many of Europe's biggest facilities in physics-related disciplines cementing a long-term deal to commit to sharing and processing open data. This agreement was presented at the “ESCAPE to the Future” conference where partners of the H2020 ESCAPE project as well as members of the scientific community and the European Commission gathered at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Science in Brussels (Belgium).

CASA processing of VLBI observations

The CASA package is now capable of calibrating the majority of VLBI observations. The new tasks and functionalities to process and calibrate VLBI observations - whose implementation has been led by JIVE - are described in a paper published in the Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific (PASP) journal. In addition to a description of the software, a comparison with AIPS processing is included, demonstrating the results are virtually identical. This paper appears jointly with the new CASA reference paper, which gives a high-level overview of the entire CASA package.

ERIS 2022 School successfully organised in Dwingeloo

Over 70 students from all over the world participated in the 9th European Radio Interferometry School (ERIS 2022) hosted by JIVE and ASTRON in Dwingeloo (the Netherlands) on 19-23 September 2022.

GMRT and EVN succesful experiments open capabilities for Global VLBI Observations

In February 2022, the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (India) achieved a new milestone in the path towards enabling their VLBI capabilities by completing two coordinated experiments conducted along with telescopes of the European VLBI Network (EVN), where Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) fringes with the GMRT were detected successfully.
