The Algonquin Radio Observatory (ARO) is a radio observatory located in Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada. It opened in 1959 in order to host a number of the National Research Council of Canada's (NRC) ongoing experiments in a more radio-quiet location than Ottawa. In 1962 it was selected as the site for the Algonquin 46m radio telescope, which has been the site's primary instrument through most of its history. A contemporary addition is an 11 m instrument. The site also hosts an atomic clock, a standard feature for radio telescopes that can also serve to receive telemetry from deep space missions. Other instruments formerly at the site included a solar-observing array of thirty-two 10 ft (3 m) dishes, and a single 1.8 m solar flux monitor observing at 10.7 cm wavelength, and a

  • El Radio Observatorio Algonquin (ARO, por sus siglas en inglés), es un complejo para la investigación, situado dentro del Parque Algonquin en Ontario, Canadá. El instrumento principal del sitio es un radiotelescopio con antena parabólica de 46 m de diámetro. Este instrumento es históricamente famoso por participar en el primer experimento exitoso de Interferometria de Muy Larga Base (VLBI), en la década de 1960. En 1966 se añadió al complejo, un conjunto compuesto por 32 antenas parabólicas, cada una de 3 metros de diámetro. El objetivo era refinar las mediciones de la exploración de la superficie del Sol, cada mediodía, con una longitud de onda de 10,7 centímetros, superando así a otros radiotelescopios anteriores.El sitio se utiliza actualmente para proporcionar información geodésica de alta precisión de localización en aplicaciones tales como la corrección de señales de GPS en tiempo real.

Other instruments formerly at the site included a solar-observing array of thirty-two 10 ft (3 m) dishes, and a single 1.8 m solar flux monitor observing at 10.7 cm wavelength, and a 18 m radio telescope from the University of Toronto. In the late 1980s, as a part of an ongoing shift of operations from the NRC to the private sector, operations of the ARO were passed to a series of operating companies. The multi-dish solar observatory was sold in the early 2000s, and the second solar observatory antenna was moved to the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory in British Columbia. The Observatory's main uses today are in very long baseline interferometry (VLBI) experiments mostly in geodesy, a primary global positioning system site, some use for satellite downlink, and other general experiments. The site is currently operated by Thoth Technologies. (en)
