Summary of information related to WP6

September 7, 2015
Work Package 6 will utilize the hardware produced by Work Package 4 and the software produced by Work Package 5 to ensure that the various subsystems are fully compatible and interoperable. Particular emphasis will be placed on ensuring that the subsystems work together as a radar system (at the sub-array level), that they do not interfere with one another (through radio frequency interference, RFI), and that the sub-array can be electronically focused properly.

A site for testing the Test Subarray will be prepared at EISCAT’s Ramfjordmoen facility near Tromsø, Norway. That location has available power, a license to transmit in the EISCAT_3D frequency band, EISCAT staff to support in the preparation and testing, and access to other scientific instrumentation to be used in testing.

Activities in this work package include:

Site preparation
Test Subarray assembly
Operational testing
Calibration evaluation
Radar testing

Deliverables

Deliverable 6.1: Test Subarray testing report

September 21, 2017
The purpose of this document is to report the test and buildup of the PfP Test Subarray, which contains the logical components Instrument Container, Antenna Unit, First stage Receiver Unit, Pulse and steering Control unit, Power Supplies, Sub System Manager and Time and frequency Unit.This is Deliverable 6.1 of the EISCAT3D_PfP project.

Milestones

Milestone 4: Site preparation complete

December 16, 2016
The ground preparation activities for the Test Subarray are finished at the EISCAT Ramfjordmoen site. Power and internet connections will be prepared when the Subarray hardware is delivered.

This constitutes Milestone 4 in the EISCAT3D_PfP project, and it was reached during the summer of 2016.
