Present status and technical directions of the EVN
Conference contribution, 2014
The European VLBI Network has evolved significantly during recent years. This has been made possible by the addition of new antennas, the introduction of the Mark 5 recording system and the emergence of high bandwidth optical fibre networks, the SFXC software correlator, and most recently, by the upgrade to digital backends at the stations. Here we describe the present status of the array and outline some of the planned future technical directions. © Copyright owned by the author(s) under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike Licence.
